Privacy Policy

Ok, this is serious stuff. And just so you know, they made me put this up.

First off, any info we gather here at through any forms or emails or comments or by using our psychic powers, we keep for ourselves. We don’t share, trade, or sell with anyone; we’re a little greedy that way. We don’t try to figure out where you live or what cereal you had for breakfast. What we do try to figure out is if you like the website and what else you’d like to see on it. If you’re happy, we’re happy.

If you share any stories or comments we use them shamelessly for our own amusement or gain.

We never use your name anywhere without your permission – hey, it’s a skip site I won’t tell if you don’t.

We do use advertisers, and we do sell you stuff – we hope it’s really great stuff, we don’t try everything, if we say we tried it, we did, we try to keep the bs to a minimum. Some of the stuff we’re trying to sell is our own, other stuff belongs to other folks, we’re affiliates of these, in other words we get a commission when you buy something, they just share some of the money with us (the price stays the same for you though, unless we can get you a super deal). So the answer is Yes, we do make money at wannaskipwork. By clicking on our affiliate links before buying you ensure we get a share. As I said earlier, the price is the same for you whether you use our link or not so we hope you use them, it helps us tremendously and we appreciate it.


If we have anybody saying they really liked something we have on here, it will be a real someone, we don’t make that sort of thing up, what would be the point? Self ego-stroking just doesn’t get our bells ringing.

Advertisers track sales. Makes sense, otherwise they’d never know you checked them out or bought their stuff, and we’d never get our cut. These tracking cookies won’t harm your computer. How much sense would it make to do that?

We use Google Ads, – these guys are just a bit more complicated and ask us to put in this extra bit:

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies click here.

They don’t use your name, address, email address, or telephone number in any of their data gathering. You have to fill that kind of stuff out and send it to them. They just watch what you’re doing, where you go, where you’ve been and try to guess where you want to go next and maybe what cereal you had for breakfast, hey it’s google, I’m not positive but I think they’re working toward world domination – so if you want to fool them do something totally out of context, like watch tv.

And a few extras, updates. I’m not even mildly interested in translating this to normal speak. If you worry about cookies, here’s what you can do about them, mostly.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a visitor’s prior visits to this website.

Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to you, the visitor, based on your visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.

You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the advertising opt-out page at opt out page

Alternatively you can opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

Third party ad-serving by Google:

Google serves ads on this site, and certifies vendors for third party ads. You can find a list of these vendors and ad networks here.

You may visit those websites to opt out of cookies (if the vendor or ad network offers this capability).

You can opt out of some, but not all, of these cookies in one location at the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out website.

Was that a bit of fun or what?

Basically anything you do on the internet or in your front yard is being watched by some nosy body, if you really care you’re going to have to hide in your basement, but I got to warn you the neighbours are going to start taking, so you might just as well crawl back out with the rest of us and have some fun.

By using this site you’re agreeing all this is ok.
