Terms of Service
Payment Terms. Due to the difficulty with debt collection, all payments for reading requests must be tendered before the reading begins. Only cash is accepted for in-person readings.
Cancellation Policy. For in-person sessions by appointment, to cancel you must send the cancelation notice to GATES OF LIGHT TAROT at least 24 (twenty-four) hours in advance of the appointment. Otherwise you will be bound to pay the session price even if you do not show up for your session.
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. Again, this is due to our busy schedule and the enormous burden placed on us 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 GATES OF LIGHT TAROT. 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. At GATES OF LIGHT TAROT we 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, GATES OF LIGHT TAROT wants to ensure that you glean the most value from your spiritual experience with us, and so if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. We would be more than happy to attend to you and see what we can do to resolve any concerns you may have.
Scope of Ministry Services. The services provided are part of the ministry of Mark Horn of GATES OF LIGHT TAROT, who is a minister, pastor, missionary, or member of a clergy accredited to or ordained by the Universal Life Church duly organized under the laws of the California.
Disclosure of Limitations. The spirituality-based services GATES OF LIGHT TAROT of 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 GATES OF LIGHT TAROT 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 GATES OF LIGHT TAROT cannot replace qualified mental health care. A tarot reading can only facilitate how you cope spiritually with a given situation.
Video Reading Recordings. GATES OF LIGHT TAROT may offer the option to provide video conference consultations or sessions through third party platforms or hosts, such as Skype or Google Hangout. These video sessions may from time to time be recorded. If a video session is recorded, you will be put on notice in advance of the recording. You are entitled to a copy of the video recording, though processing and administrative charges may apply. Before consenting to a video session, please go over any questions or concerns you may have with GATES OF LIGHT TAROT. By commencing a video session, you are consenting to the terms herein. Likewise, please be advised that you are not permitted to record video sessions without express, written permission from GATES OF LIGHT TAROT. If you would like to record your video session, then please ask before doing so. Reasonable accommodation or arrangements can then be made accordingly.
Confidentiality. GATES OF LIGHT TAROT 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 GATES OF LIGHT TAROT 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 GATES OF LIGHT TAROT against claims or threats of claims, then GATES OF LIGHT TAROT 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.

For Entertainment Purposes Only. In certain jurisdictions, the spirituality-based services provided by GATES OF LIGHT TAROT 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 GATES OF LIGHT TAROT, 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.
