Unclear or uncertain. An ambiguous phrase is one that is not easy to understand, and often could be interpreted different ways. Something ambiguous can occasionally be deceptive, either intentionally or unintentionally, because the interpreter isn't able to figure out the actual meaning. The terms and conditions of a website, or the warranty of a product, if written with ambiguity, could lead to a consumer not understanding the consequences of certain behaviors.
