This is a principle under the law of contract which states that whenever a party to a contract inserts a clause into the contract and the meaning of the clause is unclear, the unclear clause would be interpreted against the interest of the party that inserts it.

The purpose of this rule is to protect the interest of the other party against whom the clause is inserted in the first place.
