    I received this email from Google.. Although i guess i have already accepted their terms and conditions long back, i received this mail.

    What do i do to accept their new terms and conditions?

    Here is their email

    Hi,

    As you may know, we recently updated our AdSense Terms and
    Conditions to reflect upcoming product changes and ensure that
    they're consistent with policies across Google.

    We noticed that you haven't yet accepted the new Terms and
    Conditions. To review them and indicate your acceptance, please
    log in at http://www.google.com/adsense and follow the
    instructions. Please be aware that all publishers must accept the
    new Terms and Conditions in order to continue their participation
    in the AdSense program.

    You can find more information about some of the changes in the new
    program terms by reviewing
    https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=81794
    . Unfortunately, we're not able to further interpret the meaning
    of the Terms and Conditions for you. If you have additional
    questions, you may wish to contact an attorney.

    We appreciate your understanding.


    Sincerely,

    The Google AdSense Team

    Exactly the same problem here. Received email and there are no new Terms to accept. Weird, especially the end of the letter:
    "If you have additional questions, you may wish to contact an attorney."

    Somebody please hurry and register AdsenseAttorney.com !... :)

    Yes, same thing here too. It was probably a bad move from Google.

    "What do i do to accept their new terms and conditions?"

    Few weeks back, one day when I logged in my adsense account, a page opened with the new terms and there were few options like, accept or accept later.

    If you haven't seen this in your account, then I suggest you contact adsense support.

    Oh, I remember that (must have been even months back)! One of the major changes was the requirement for all Adsense publishers to have a page with the privacy policy of the website.

    Got same email. I think it was sent in error, because I have already accepted their terms a while ago.

    I got it too. I figured it was someone phishing. I would never log into my account through a link in an email. That would be crazy.

    Well I HAVEN'T received this email yet.
    I have just gone and checked my email account, and there is nothing there from Google.

    I did click and accept their change in the TOS a while back, but so have others here who have received the email.

    By the sounds of it, it has been sent out to everyone. I will probably receive it at some point today.
