A statement of the voluntary surrender of a right. For example, suppose a company provides customers a service that might be dangerous, such as bungee jumping. The company may require customers to sign a waiver relinquishing the right to sue the company for negligence if a problem occurs. This reduces the company's risk in the conduct of its business.
