Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

Below is the necessary legalese regarding privacy and terms of service.


Below are The Tarot Donkey’s Terms of Service, created largely in part using the template generously provided by Benebell Wen.

Refund Policy for Services. Refunds will be offered in the following circumstances:

  • If we are unable to reach an agreement on a question. This dilemma can be avoided by reading through my code of ethics before purchasing a reading.
  • If after reaching out to me for clarification or other concern you are still genuinely unsatisfied with the service I have provided. To avoid being taken advantage of, I reserve the right to refuse service in the future.

I want to ensure that you glean the most value from your experience with me, and so if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. I would be more than happy to attend to you and see what I can do to resolve any concerns you may have.

Return & Refund Policy for Goods. Returns and refunds are accepted in the following circumstances:

  • If an item arrives damaged, let me know within 5 days of receiving the item. You may return the item and you can request that I either (a) send you a replacement and refund the return shipping or (b) refund your purchase and return shipping.
  • If you decide you do not want an item, it can be returned within 14 days of having been delivered provided it is in its original condition and unopened in its original packaging. I will refund your original cost and shipping once I have received the returned item; you are responsible for return shipping. I can also offer store credit in the form of a coupon for the amount of your original purchase.

If there is an issue with a deck not related to shipping (e.g. it is missing a card or the accompanying book is mis-paged), contact the publisher first as they are usually quite helpful in replacing these items. I am more than happy to assist you with that if you wish, just let me know.

For any other extenuating circumstances, contact me and we will discuss the matter to reach a satisfactory end for you.

Payment Terms. Due to the difficulty with debt collection, all payments for reading requests must be tendered in advance. Payments are accepted through PayPal. Please note that all payment transfers are done through the third party platform Paypal, so please be familiar with the privacy policy and terms of use for these third party platforms. The Tarot Donkey is not liable for any mishandling by these third party platforms. In the event of third party mishandling, your claim will be with PayPal directly.

Service Requested is Not Time Sensitive. You understand and acknowledge that the service you have requested is not urgent and that time is not of the essence. If, however, your inquiry is urgent or time-sensitive, then separate, additional, written arrangements need to be made with The Tarot Donkey. If no such documented, written arrangements are made on timing of delivery, then you hereby assure us that your request and needs are not time-sensitive.

Disclosure of Limitations. The spirituality-based services of The Tarot Donkey should never be used in place of professional counseling. Your reading cannot offer legal, medical, business, or financial advice nor does any portion of your reading from The Tarot Donkey purport to do so. You should not rely on any such spirituality-based service to make any decision that would affect your legal, financial, or medical condition. If your inquiry involves the law, finance, or medicine, then you should seek the advice of a licensed or qualified legal, financial, or medical professional. Also, spirituality-based services by The Tarot Donkey cannot replace qualified mental health care. A tarot reading can only facilitate how you cope spiritually with a given situation.

Confidentiality. The Tarot Donkey exercises reasonable diligence in maintaining the confidentiality of your sessions and we will not voluntarily, knowingly, intentionally, or willfully disclose your identity or the contents of your sessions with us to third parties. However, if The Tarot Donkey genuinely believes disclosure is required to: (1) prevent imminent harm or risk of harm to yourself or to another, (2) meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, or (3) protect or defend The Tarot Donkey against claims or threats of claims, then The Tarot Donkey reserves the right to do so to the extent reasonably necessary. Please keep in mind that no legally recognized privilege exists between a tarot professional and client the way a privilege might exist between an attorney and client, doctor and patient, husband and wife, or priest and penitent.

Fortune Telling Laws. Pursuant to applicable laws of certain jurisdictions, a person can be guilty of fortune telling, still outlawed in certain places, when for a fee or compensation, that person claims or pretends to tell fortunes, or holds him or herself out as being able, by claimed or pretended use of occult powers, to answer questions or give advice on personal matters or to exorcise, influence, or affect evil spirits or curses, unless otherwise done so explicitly for entertainment purposes only. Any and all services provided by The Tarot Donkey neither claims nor pretends to tell fortunes and neither claims nor pretends to use occult powers in ways that would run against such laws.

For Entertainment Purposes Only. In certain jurisdictions, the spirituality-based services provided by The Tarot Donkey would require a clear disclaimer that such services are for entertainment purposes only. Thus, if such a law applies to any sessions between us, then you are hereby on notice that our session is and can only be for entertainment purposes only. Nonetheless, please note that per the faith and personal spiritual practices of The Tarot Donkey, all sessions will comply strictly to the morals and codes outlined by that faith and spiritual practice. In other words, we take our moral obligation to you seriously. Irrespective of the law, we treat our spiritual connection with you with reverence, faith, and integrity.

Reservation of Right. From time to time, as would be ordinary for any business, The Tarot Donkey may modify the Terms of Service and we reserve the right to do so at our discretion accordingly. The terms your service with us will be bound by will be the terms applicable at the time your service was rendered.

Contact. If you have any questions or concerns about our Terms of Service, please contact

By contacting The Tarot Donkey for a reading, you are in effect acknowledging and agreeing to the foregoing terms of service.
