We heard about UX, so we decided to hire one

There seems to be a lot of hiring for UX professionals, now, in the New York City area.

Examples of engaging privacy policies / terms of engagement

Seen any privacy policies, credit card policies, terms of engagement, service agreements etc that don't just make your eyes glaze over and turn the page?

We're looking for examples (web based or paper based) where people manage to make this legalese heavy, text heavy interaction a positive one, or at least one that people don't just skip over.
