Terms of Use

Overview

The Biddy Tarot website (Site) is a sacred online space for connecting with Tarot enthusiasts and learning to read Tarot with confidence. We love, and want to protect, the beautiful space we have created and those who use it.

To maintain this sacred space, we have established a set of Site rules. If you access and use the Site, you agree to follow these rules. If you don’t agree with them, please don’t access or use the Site.

We may revise these rules from time to time by updating this posting. The revised rules will take effect as soon as they are posted on the Site.

Content

We (Biddy Tarot) are the owners of the Site, including all content which makes up the Site (Content).

We encourage you to contribute to the Site by submitting comments, participating in the Site discussion areas and, where appropriate, uploading information and photos (Submissions).

You retain any ownership rights you already have in your Submissions. By posting Submissions, you agree that we can reproduce, modify, publish, and distribute the Submissions and that we won’t breach anyone else’s rights if we do so.

In particular, by making a Submission on the Biddy Tarot website pages, you consent to Biddy Tarot reproducing and publishing that content (either in whole or an edited version of the posting) elsewhere on the Site, in communications, and in social media forums.

Please do not share resources, training, or content with people outside of the Site or claim that it is yours.

Nothing you do on the Site will transfer any ownership rights in any part of the Site to you or permit you to assert any ownership rights unless we specifically agree.

Unless we give you our specific written permission, you can’t reprint or electronically reproduce the Site or any of its contents, including tarot card images, in whole or in part.  If you buy documents through the Site, you can use those for personal use, but don’t give them to anyone else outside of the Site to use.

We might change or take down the Site from time to time.

We may, from time to time, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any or all of the Site or the Content.  If you keep using the Site or the Content after a revision, you accept the revised terms.

Conduct

The Site is intended as a safe place for people to learn the Tarot. It is of utmost importance that all conversations that take place in the Site be encouraging, inspiring, kind, and dedicated to learning the art of Tarot.

We expect participants to help us achieve this by keeping the conversations welcoming and inviting, and following these basic rules:

  • Please be pleasant and respectful of the opinions and beliefs of others
  • Be open to ideas and opinions that may be different to yours
  • Keep personal differences out of discussions
  • Keep your comments focused and on topic
  • No blatant self-promotion, marketing, advertising or sales pitches of your own products or services (or anyone else’s)
  • Maintain client privacy and confidentiality. Remove any identifiable information if you wish to share a client reading or situation
  • If you post a reading and want help with interpreting it, give your interpretation first, then ask for help
  • What is shared in the Site, stays in the Site. Respect each other’s privacy and intellectual property
  • Contributors may not submit content that is threatening, abusive, defamatory, indecent, harassing, or offensive

You must not post, display or otherwise contribute to the Site anything that belongs to someone else, is unlawful, offensive, mean or nasty (even if it’s true!), any spam or any private information about anyone else.

You also aren’t allowed to distribute viruses, corrupted files or anything else that might damage the operation of any computer hardware or software, or collect or store personal data about other Site visitors.
