    is it safe to put adsense on the contact, privacy policy, about us, terms, pages or is it against their TOS?

    Im not sure that its against terms but its pointless so don't bother.

    Hardly anyone visits those pages.

    If you mean ads in the sidebar, don't worry about them

    As Hawkster said it is completely pointless, we all add these pages to cover ourselves and nobody ever reads them. How many websites have you been to and gone and read these pages? Google likes us to have them present on the site as do Amazon, but they know that nobody bothers with them

    These legal pages do not fall under any of the content that is prohibited by Adsense nor do they violate the Adsense Ad Placement Policy. As long as the pages are content-based pages, you can add the Adsense ads to them.

    I don't think so. Since the page lacks any content, it can, according to the Adsense Policy, "confuse a visitor into thinking that the ads are actual content, so do not place ads on such pages.".

    Don't place ads in the body of those pages. The ads at the sidebars can stay and they won't cause you any issues. I don't really think Google cares too much, but that was how it was done back in the day when I used to use AdSense. Though ads with thin content is not something Google likes, so be careful.

    Is Adsense even worth doing at all is my question. Has anyone here made a lot of money from Adsense?

    Don't think you should put ads on those pages, they won't get any traffic anyway, so you won't be getting anything out of it. Better to stay safe and just remove the ads from those pages.
