Privacy: fixes for the privacy policy guide and suggested content:

  • Separate the guide text form the suggested policy text.
  • Add table of content for easier navigation.
  • Move the content to tools.php (prevents the settings menu of being open).
  • Add a link to the guide from the Privacy settings screen.

Props melchoyce, azaozz.
See #43980.
