It's a bit tongue in cheek but hopefully more readable for non-techies and non-lawyers than most, and hopefully it's also accurately compliant with both English and US requirements.
If anyone thinks otherwise or has any other comments, please let me know.
In fact I think it's more compliant than most because I decided I needed to factor in the use of blog widgets, in my case MyBlogLog and Delicious tagometer, as well as Google AdSense, Google Analytics and Statcounter of course. And the use of Google / Blogger for search, and logging in for comments.
The third party widgets issue - cookies / web beacons
Hopefully it'll be them, the third party widgeteer, not you, the mere blog owner. But if you voluntarily chose to include their widgets on your blog, could you be held responsible?
Maybe the safest, least risk-averse approach would be simply not to include third party widgets from any site that doesn't properly explain their widgets' personal data collection and use, even though that would really limit the features on your blog.
I really don't know the answer to that. If enough bloggers ask Google, Yahoo etc to clarify their widget usage, maybe they will? We can but hope.
