Over the years, several projects have started with the intention of doing for Terms of Services and/or Privacy policies what Creative Commons has done for Copyright notices. Most of these projects have been abandoned after a while, but some are still alive.

Please add to the list if you have relevant information!

Privacy Icons [[1]] Started by Aza Raskin while he was working for Mozilla, this project has done a great job drafting icons to describe a select set of privacy parameters. Being a Mozilla project, there's a chance that the icons may be presented in a dedicated browser panel rather than on a webpage somewhere on a website. Last known activity: December 2010.

CommonTerms [[2]] Initially focusing on Terms of Service rather than Privacy Policies. Currently (September 2011) trying to find terms that are commonly found in ToS documents, and planning to create icons and associated legal definitions for those. Run by Pär Lannerö with support from the Swedish Internet fund.
