Terms of Service

Payment Terms.  Due to the difficulty with debt collection, all payments for reading requests must be tendered in advance.  PayPal payments accepted.  Please direct your payment preference type to Alaina O’Brien at the time of your service request.  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.  Alaina O’Brien is not liable for any mishandling by these third party platforms.  In the event of third party mishandling, your claim will be with Alaina O’Brien directly.  If your payment is not properly transferred due to deficiencies on your end, then Alaina O’Brien will be entitled to the balance owed plus a 25% interest as additional charge for the deficiency.

Cancellation Policy.  For e-mail written reading reports, all sales are final and therefore once offer and acceptance have been confirmed, you will be bound to the terms.  This is due to my busy schedule and the enormous burden placed on me if and when there are cancellations.

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 Alaina O’Brien.  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.

Refund Policy for Services.  I value one-to-one personalized care, supported by a spiritual point of view.  You are requesting a spirituality-based service tendered from experience, specialized knowledge, and personalized attention.  Thus, our services are non-refundable.  All service fulfillments are final.  Nonetheless, I want to ensure that you glean the most value from your spiritual 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.

Disclosure of Limitations.  The spirituality-based services I provide 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 Alaina O’Brien 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 Alaina O’Brien cannot replace qualified mental health care.  A tarot reading can only facilitate how you cope spiritually with a given situation.

Confidentiality.  Alaina O’Brien exercises reasonable diligence in maintaining the confidentiality of your sessions and I will not voluntarily, knowingly, intentionally, or willfully disclose your identity or the contents of your sessions with us to third parties.  However, if Alaina O’Brien 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 Alaina O’Brien against claims or threats of claims, then Alaina O’Brien 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 Alaina O’Brien 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 Alaina O’Brien 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 Alaina O’Brien, all sessions will comply strictly to the morals and codes outlined by that faith and spiritual practice.  In other words, I take my moral obligation to you seriously.  Irrespective of the law, I treat my spiritual connection with you with reverence, faith, and integrity.

Reservation of Right.  From time to time, as would be ordinary for any business, Alaina O’Brien 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.
