definition of rejection:
the act of rejection or disagreement; in contracts, the refusal of an offer.
rejection, as it might be used:
The insurance contract is not terminated until the insurer has actually rejected the application and by appropriate notice communicated the rejection to the insured.
rejection, in an example:
On a daily basis, Ogden receives several unsolicited pieces of mail that appear to be offers for low-rate mortgages. In reality these are not offers but solicitations, inviting Ogden to apply for a mortgage which may or may not result in an actual offer. Because these solicitations are not actual offers, Ogden is not required to communicate a rejection.
