The Biddy Tarot Community is a safe, diverse and inclusive community of Tarot lovers from all over the world. We are proud to provide a platform which allows our members to voice their opinions and share their views.
In joining the Biddy Tarot Community, you agree to accept any difference of opinion with other members with grace and empathy. Biddy Tarot doesn’t tolerate harassment or bullying in any way, shape or form (and honestly, we prefer to celebrate our differences, rather than moderate disagreements!)

RULE #2: WE ENCOURAGE AND SUPPORT OTHERS
Joining a new community can feel a little like the first day at a new school!
While we know how special the Biddy Tarot Community is — bear in mind that learning Tarot, and joining a new group of virtual friends, can feel a little intimidating.
Please do all you can to encourage and support new members, and show them what it really means to be a member of the Biddy Tarot Community!
Note: while we adore seeing our Community members link up to create Tarot study groups—we do have some suggestions and guidelines for how these groups are created, and promoted within our Forum.
Biddy Tarot Community Forum Guidelines:
- Do not promote, advocate or in any way try to sell, market or distribute any products from anyone other than Biddy Tarot.
- Do not solicit personal information such as age, gender, gender identity, political affiliation, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion or sexual orientation.
- Do not misrepresent yourself or in any way try to get others to identify you as anyone other than your Biddy Tarot public persona as detailed in your Bio or About Me page.
RULE #3: WE SHARE KNOWLEDGE (NOT SPAM!)
Biddy Tarot moderates the Community Forum daily to ensure everyone has a great experience.
Feel free to share as many links as you like to Tarot-related blog posts, podcasts and articles, Tarot and oracle decks, Tarot spreads, or anything else related to Tarot and Tarot studies!
After all—we’re all here to learn, and we’d love for you to share with other members some of the resources that have helped you (more on how to do this in Rule #4!).
Please note that posts containing non-Tarot related links or content, as well as promotional material will be considered spam and may be removed.
RULE #4: WE ACKNOWLEDGE ORIGINAL SOURCES
To follow on from the above—be sure to credit the original source when linking to blog posts, podcasts, spreads, decks, or any other content inside the Biddy Tarot Community.
It’s important to give credit where credit is due — think of it as raising up a fellow Tarot-lover, and doing the right thing!
RULE #5: WE LOVE TO HAVE FUN, CONNECT AND GROW!
More than anything else, we want the Biddy Tarot Community to be a place for Tarot lovers to connect with each other, learn from each other, and grow together!
We achieve this by keeping our wonderful Community a safe, fun and fair place for everyone to talk all things Tarot.
If you ever need support, or have any further questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to [email protected]—or, reach out to one of the Biddy Tarot Community Moderators in the Forum.
Team Biddy is always just a click away!
Promoting External Study Groups
We love to see our members connect in study groups, and further their Tarot knowledge with others. Feel free to use the Forum to create and manage your study group—don’t forget to include the date, time and the Zoom meeting link.
Having said this, we only allow promotion of and linking to public Zoom rooms for group study purposes. Do not direct members to non-Biddy Tarot websites (personal websites/booking links) or other community platforms (i.e. Mighty Networks) to join your study group—these posts may be deleted.
Please note: study groups are for studying only—not for advertising your services or promoting your business. Self-promoting or directing people outside Biddy Tarot to other sites or channels may result in you being removed from the Community.
The Biddy Tarot Diversity & Inclusion Policy
As a global, multicultural organization, we are committed to supporting and celebrating our diverse customer base and team. Our goal is to create a safe, inclusive space for all.
Everyone has a right to be part of the Biddy Tarot community free of harassment, bullying, and violent threats. Posts, comments, content, and people who incite violence or promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be removed from our community.
Biddy Tarot has a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination or harrassment on the basis of race, culture, background, sexuality, gender identity, etc. Please refer to our full Diversity & Inclusion Policy for further information.

Since we have a clear and explicit Refund Policy in these T&C that you have agreed to prior to completing the purchase of a Program, we do not tolerate or accept any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit card company or payment processor. In the event that a chargeback is placed on a purchase or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, we reserve the right to report the incident to all relevant credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as a delinquent account which could have a negative impact on your credit report score.

The Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse or terminate your access to a Program and any Content, in full or in part, at any time without notice. In the event of cancellation or termination, you are no longer authorized to access the part of a Program or Content affected by such cancellation or termination. The restrictions imposed on you in these T&C with respect to a Program and its Content will still apply now and in the future, even after termination by you or the Company.
Personal Responsibility, Assumption of Risk, Disclaimers, and Indemnification
1) You acknowledge that, by using a Program or Content, you voluntarily assume an element of inherent risk, and knowingly and freely assume all risk and responsibility for injuries to any persons or damages to any property, and release, covenant not to sue, and hold Releasees harmless for any and all liability to you, your personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin, for any and all claims, causes of action, obligations, lawsuits, charges, complaints, controversies, damages, costs or expenses of whatsoever kind, nature, or description, whether direct or indirect, in law or in equity, in contract or in tort, or otherwise, whether known or unknown, arising out of or connected with your (or your minor child’s/ward’s) participation in a Program, whether or not caused by the active or passive negligence of the Releasees.
In the event that the release and hold harmless provision is held unenforceable for any reason, you agree to limit any damages claimed to the total amount you paid the Company for a Program.
2) The Program and Content provide information and education only, and do not provide any financial, legal, medical or psychological services or advice. None of the Program(s) or Content prevents, cures or treats any mental or medical condition. The Program and Content are not intended to be a substitute for professional advice that can be provided by your own accountant, lawyer, financial advisor, or medical professional. You are responsible for your own financial, legal, physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results. You should consult with a professional if you have specific questions about your own unique situation. The Company disclaims any liability for your reliance on any opinions or advice contained in a Program.
3) Earnings and Results Disclaimer. You agree that Company has not made and does not make any representations about the earnings or results you may receive as a result of your participation in a Program or Content. The Company cannot and does not guarantee that you will achieve any particular result or earnings from your use of a Program, and you understand that results and earnings differ for each individual. Testimonials published by us are independent and genuine, but they do not represent a guarantee or warranty of similar results.
From time to time, the Company may promote, affiliate with, collaborate or partner with other individuals or businesses whose programs, products and services align with ours. In exchange we may receive financial compensation or other rewards for these promotions. These will never be at any additional cost to you.
Real talk: although we are highly selective and only promote the partners whose programs, products and/or services we respect, you agree that any such promotion or marketing does not serve as any form of endorsement whatsoever. Please use your own judgment to determine that any such program, product or service is appropriate for you, as you are assuming all risks, and agree that we are not liable in any way for any program, product or service that we may promote, market, share or sell on or through our Website.

Although the Company may recommend third-party sites, products or services, it is your responsibility to fully research such third parties before entering into any transaction or relationship with them.
5) The Company tries to ensure that the availability and delivery of a Program and Content is uninterrupted and error-free. However, the Company cannot guarantee that your access will not be suspended or restricted from time to time, including to allow for repairs, maintenance or updates, although, of course, we will try to limit the frequency and duration of suspension or restriction.

12) The Company controls and operates the Program(s) from offices in Australia, New Zealand, North America, South America and Europe. The Company does not represent that materials on a Program are appropriate or available for use in other locations. People who choose to access a Program from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
13) You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs, debt and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from or in connection with: (i) your use of a Program, Content or Intellectual Property in violation of these T&C, (ii) any breach by you of these T&C or any representation and warranty made by you herein, (iii) any comment, post, or material you submit to the Company’s website or any third-party forum or website operated by the Company, (iv) your use of Intellectual Property, materials, or features available on a Program or Content (except to the extent a claim is based upon infringement of a third-party right by materials created by the Company) or (v) a violation by you of applicable law or any agreement or terms with a third party to which you are subject.
14) You expressly agree that these T&C are intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by law and that if any portion is held invalid, it is agreed that it will be severed and the balance shall continue in full legal force and effect. This release is not intended as an attempted release of claims of gross negligence or intentional acts by Releasees. This is the entire agreement of the parties, and reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter. This agreement supersedes all prior written and oral representations.
The Company may change, modify or update these T&C at any time without notice. Any access or use of a Program or Content by you after the Company publicly posts or distributes such changes shall constitute consent of such modifications.
