Terms and Conditions of Use

  1. Introduction

    1.1. Welcome to Soccerwidow.com. This site is owned and operated by Hertis Services Ltd (“we”, “us” or “our”) and it is the place where Soccerwidow and Soccerwidow’s Bloke tell you all you need to know about insightful and responsible football betting.

    1.2. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE (“Terms”) BEFORE USING OUR SITE. By using our site you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms. If you do not wish to be bound by what you read below, please exit Soccerwidow.com now.

    1.3. We may make changes to these Terms & Conditions at any time. We will let you know what these changes are by posting them to this page, but it is your responsibility as a user to make sure that you are aware of them, by checking for any changes on a regular basis. Changes are effective as soon as they are posted. If you continue to use our site after the posting of changes to these Terms & Conditions, please be aware that you are deemed to have accepted any such changes.

  2. What we do and what we offer

    This site is all about football betting and enlightening our readers with statistics based betting strategies. Bookmakers and betting exchanges use statistics as the means of formulating their odds and Soccerwidow.com realises that a statistics based approach to football betting is the only way to take on the bookmakers on equal terms and provide a chance of finding value bets.

    Value bets are those at odds which if backed consistently to a soundly calculated staking plan will bring long-term profits to the bettor. We provide regular articles and mathematical tools to help our readers, some paid tuition courses and a chance for guest authors to provide their own ideas to help become a successful gambler. Soccerwidow also offers professional services to businesses.

  3. What we do not do

    The information we provide does not address your individual requirements. In particular, our information does not constitute any form of advice, recommendation, representation, endorsement or arrangement by us and is not intended to be relied upon by you in making (or refraining from making) any specific investment or other decisions. Given that the impact of any information expressed on our site can vary widely based on your particular circumstances, you should always carry out your own research into the area that is of interest to you. We do not offer a picks service but do publish from time to time our own suggested match predictions to serve as evidence of the accuracy of our service. Please follow them at your own discretion and do not rely on them.
  4. Privacy Policy
    We take your privacy seriously. Please read our Privacy Policy to see how we deal with this information.
  5. Links

    5.1. Our website does include details on, or links through to, information provided by on-line gambling websites. We don’t control the accuracy or completeness of that information. You take full responsibility for using that information and verifying it and for any decision to use, purchase or refrain from purchasing any of the services or products mentioned on a linked site. If you do purchase products or services from another website please read their contract carefully before deciding to invest. Please remember your contract for those products or services will be with them, not us.

    5.2. When you use other websites, any personal information you give them will be dealt with in line with their privacy polices, not ours, so please read the privacy policies of each and every such website before using them!

    5.3. Soccerwidow uses Google AdSense advertising and a handful of affiliate links to provide superficial income. These are links which take you directly or indirectly to a bookmaker, betting exchange provider or other related service and which may result in us receiving a fee or commission as a consequence of you clicking through to their site or investing with them. Our selection of links is not influenced by any fee/commission received but more by the services they provide. Our independence is of paramount importance to us.

    Apart from the paid tuition courses and some articles everything else on the site is provided free of charge to our readers. Because income from affiliate links is so small, we include a donation button on our site for any welcome contributions to keep the site running. Any bettor making money using Soccerwidow philosophies is more than welcome to his or her fortune and any commission you wish to provide us as a ‘thank you’ through the donation button is gratefully received and goes straight back into the website to help keep it operating.

    5.4. Some external links will take you to the sites of news stories we have found useful, amusing or just downright confusing. Again, please be aware that rules 5.1 and 5.2 noted above still apply.

    5.5. You are welcome to link to our site if you comply with the Terms & Conditions set out in this section and all applicable laws.

    Any site or service that links to our site:

    • can display a Soccerwidow.com logo but must not otherwise use any Soccerwidow.com trade marks without our written consent;
    • must not remove, distort or otherwise alter the size or appearance of our logo;
    • may link to any post published in Soccerwidow;
    • must not in any way imply that we are endorsing it or its products or services;
    • must not misrepresent its relationship with us or present false information about us;
    • must not be a site or service that infringes any intellectual property or other right of any person or that otherwise does not comply with all relevant laws and regulations;
    • must not be a site or service that contains content that could be considered distasteful or offensive.

    If you breach these terms, then we have the right to require that your link is removed and to take whatever other action we think appropriate.
