Bug Description

The GDPR will go into effect on 25 May 2018. There are several changes that are required in Mahara. Amongst them is an update to the privacy statement template as some requirements need to be explained in there.

A non-exhaustive list is available at https://wiki.mahara.org/wiki/Developer_Area/Specifications_in_Development/GDPR_compliance#Non-technical_considerations_for_the_privacy_statement_template

This here is for the update of the text. Any other changes will be dealt with separately.

Moodle has some information that could serve as inspiration: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/GDPR_For_Administrators

summary: - Update Terms and Conditions for GDPR
+ Update privacy statement for GDPR
description: updated

We are not going to provide any default text so as not to imply that the text we provide is sufficient for the purpose of any Mahara site. It will be up to each institution to consult with their lawyer to provide appropriate content.

Bug 1734164: Update default legal statements

Removed the template text so as not to imply
that it is sufficient for an institution. Every
site admin will need to check with the institution's
legal team on what needs to be provided in the
"Terms and conditions" and "Privacy statement".

Template text was also removed for the default
homepage and dashboard to encourage institutions
to write their own text.
