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.
