Terms and Conditions with a twist

I am looking for sample of Terms and Conditions acceptance with a bit of a twist.

Generally when I have set up T&C acceptance in the past, there is a scrollable box with all the legal text followed by either a check box to say that you have read/accept the T&C or there are radio button for “yes” and “no” about accepting them. In either case a person never has to actually read, or even scroll to the bottom of, the T&C text. The common stuff...

However I have a client that will not accept (no pun intended) this.

New thread notifications for IxDA Discuss

There's a new e-mail option for discussion list subscribers that some
of you may be interested in.

Members can now subscribe to "new thread notifications" in order to
receive only the first post of each new thread. This option will
result in much less e-mail than the full subscription. Subscribers
should receive around five to ten new messages each day as opposed to
the 70-80 that would normally pile up from the discussion list.

jobs related to interaction design are spread across the world.
Design labs are not present in every country and most products are designed
