The practice of being excluded is known as exclusionary. When a thing is deemed as exclusionary in nature, it is not considered a part of the contract or the list of things being counted. For example, in an insurance contract, a suicidal death or death by HIV may not be considered for compensation, and hence they form a part of the exclusionary items.

In US, a rule that prohibits the usage of unlawfully obtained evidence in a criminal proceeding is said to be exclusionary. Such kind of evidence assembled or analysed in violence of the constitution of the US is not considered as proof in a criminal prosecution, in the court of law. The rule created in the year 1914, with reference to the case of Weeks v. United States, is applicable to every citizen residing within the United States of America.
