small print

Definitions

Commerce

  • noun items printed at the end of an official document such as a contract in smaller letters than the rest of the text. People sometimes do not pay attention to the small print, but it can contain important information, and unscrupulous operators may deliberately try to hide things such as additional charges, unfavourable terms, or loopholes in it.

Law

  • noun information printed at the end of a contract or other official document in smaller letters than the rest of the text, often containing important details that might be overlooked
