Legal module does most of what you want, it requires the user to tick a 
check-box stating that they have read terms and conditions.

I have plans to introduce versioning - so that if a user has accepted 
version 1 of the T&C but a new version is posted they must accept 
version 2 before they can log in. The current version of the module has 
all the database tables for this, and captures all the necessary data, 
but I haven't had time to implement versioning features yet.

You're welcome to pick up where I left off on this.

Best regards,
