I have been doing the same FarmBoy, and I still get the contract. Are you sure you didn't accidentally accept it already?
This is how I have mine on all my sites, I hope this is ok by Google as it specifically refers to cookies for ad tracking:
I think you should cover the fact that not just YOUR site is sending Cookies to them, but also 3rd Party sites like Google. I'd recommend to extend your language accordingly.
I guess this is where the privacy advocats actually are concerned. YOU probably can not create a set of data that exactly tracks individual users. Google can (and does).
Zett, true, you're right there. I will amend to include 3rd Party to cover that aspect.
Thanks for that WiseWebDude. I'm going to use something similar to yours, but I don't set cookies myself so I will only refer to 3rd party cookies being set. Good enough for me :)
How does Google police it?
Much smarter to give a standard policy to copy and paste... then G can bot every adsense site and see if it's there in full.

Me too it is gone. And I didn't accept it yet.
Mine is still there.
WiseWebDude - I'm kind of slow but is that your complete policy? I was envisioning pages of hard to read and understand legal type terms. If that is all that is needed I don't see any big problem or concern other than if it has to be linked to each page. Thanks

In the future we may begin to serve new ad tags that may use web beacons to help advertisers track their metrics.
thanks for the response, ASA.
Oh come on. A general overall duck out? At least you oculd provide the "bare minimum policy requirements" that are acceptable to Google in order to pass mustard and not be penalized later, or does G really get it's jollys pouncing on unsuspecting webmasters who thought they WERE doing things right. Especially for those who do not currently have ANY policy posted (never used cookies ourselves, don't even know how to and never wanted to) and are starting from scratch. Is it safe to say then that what Google displays themselves is totally sufficient for us or do we need to go above and beyond in originality? BTW, isn't mentioning the fact that some links displayed by Adsense may contain 'whatever' violate the part of the TOS about NOT drawing attention to the ads in any way?

Won't find me practising
What I'm preaching
Won't find me
Making no sacrifice
But I can get you a pocketful of miracles
If you promise to be good
Try to be nice
God will take
Good care of you
Just do as I say,
Don't do as I do

Dito for the one relevant to analytics ?
That way I can link to them and be done with it.
