Comment (by xkon):

 [attachment:"49035.2.diff"] introduces a new Dashboard widget regarding
 privacy information. It will only be active for users with
 `manage_privacy_options`, `export_others_personal_data` or
 `erase_others_personal_data` caps and the information within will be
 displayed accordingly as well depending on the cap access.

 After an extra discussion, it seems that adding them on the existing at A
 Glance might be a bit confusing so an extra widget focusing only on
 Privacy-related information would help better.

 This provides an easy extra link to access the Privacy Policy Guide as
 well as information regarding the Exports/Erasures statistic similar to
 "At a Glance".

 We can also expand this to work in a similar way as Comments currently do
 by also adding some "quick actions" to send e-mails for confirmation etc
 in a future patch.
