 Privacy: Move privacy policy page to `Settings` menu for consistency.

 The page was originally placed under `Tools` so that it would be grouped
 with the pages to export and erase personal data, since they're all part
 of the effort to bring privacy management tools to Core ahead of GDPR's
 deadline. After more consideration, though, it makes sense to move this
 page to the `Settings` menu, since it's fundamental purpose is to
 configure an option, rather than to facilitate a recurring task. This
 keeps all of the configuration pages in a single place, making them
 consistent and easier to find.

 Exporting and erasing personal data are recurring tasks, so they still
 make sense under the `Tools` menu.

 Fixes #43873.
