About/Privacy screen: Use natural text for link anchors

Description

I just noticed a small accessibility issue in the About/Privacy screen (wp-admin/privacy.php).

The WordPress.org/about/privacy link anchor should ideally be replaced with a link included in a natural language sentence, as said in the Accessibility handbook.

I'd suggest to replace:

<p>We take privacy and transparency very seriously. To learn more about what data we collect, and how we use it, please visit <a href="…">WordPress.org/about/privacy</a>.</p>

with:

<p>We take privacy and transparency very seriously. To learn more about what data we collect, and how we use it, please visit <a href="…">our Privacy Policy page</a>.</p>

:wave:
Adding this to 5.7. so it does not get lost when we make changes to the copy :)
I would suggest dropping the "page" at the end and just going for "our Privacy Policy" though.
