  • Some issues that may require disclaimers include:
  • Laws in different countries

Electronic Gadgets as Templates 

A Typical Disclaimer

They are usually labeled as Terms & Conditions, Important Terms, Disclaimers, Warranty and Exchange Information, or something similar. It’s usual to use several disclaimers to cover as many of your requirements as possible: The condition of the item being sold. The condition of the packaging. Shipment restrictions – which countries will you ship to? Is there a shipping warranty? Recommendations for restrictions on product use – not to be used around pets or by small children, for example. Accepted payment methods. Availability of refunds, exchanges, and warranties. Legal restrictions on the products used.


Disclaimer Examples

The following are somewhat random examples of disclaimers, all taken from eBay. You’ll have to tailor each rejection to each product and your own shipping/payment/warranty/restriction needs.

GSM Cell phones:

Online electronics gadgets sellers often need to add disclaimer notices to their cell phones because not all GSM cell phone network uses the same frequency.

There were four main frequencies with the traditional 2G and 2.5G networks: 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, and 1900MHz.

Phones that used 900MHz, and 1800MHz bands traditionally worked in most countries (except the US, North America, and US territories). In contrast, 850MHz and 1900MHz phones traditionally worked in the US, North America, and US territories.

The 3G system has further compounded matters by working on a different frequency and not being compatible with some phones being produced now.

An appropriate disclaimer for GSM cell phones would read as follows:
NOTE: This product is compatible with GSM at the frequencies of 900MHz, 1800MHz. This cell phone will not work in North America.

 Radar Scanners:

While radar scanners are popular, it is illegal to buy or use them.

This is mainly because their primary purpose is to identify speed cameras or police officers to avoid speeding tickets, which explains both its illegality and popularity.

To cover yourself, include the following disclaimer:

NOTE: Certain countries prevent the use and ownership of these devices. You are solely responsible for finding out whether this product is legal to import or use in your country. We will send you the products you order and cannot accept any liability for customs issues or implications of your ownership or usage of this device.

Ni-Cad Batteries:

Ni-Cad batteries have a memory. As a result, they work better and have a longer lifespan if they are charged a certain way when they are first used.

As a result, this would be a good disclaimer:

NOTE: Ni-Cad batteries give their best performance if entirely uncharged and charged three times after purchase.
