Bug Description

We are going to change the way our privacy statement are displayed due to necessary changes for the GDPR.

For that, we should ensure that the link to the privacy statement in the footer of the site (if displayed) shows both site and institution privacy statements when an institution member is logged in.

summary: - Show site and institution T&C when an institution member is logged in
+ Show site and institution T&C in footer when an institution member is
+ logged in

This will need to be configured via the footer_menu() function and the admin/site/menu.php 'Footer menu' section for T&C will need to be duplicated for the Institution section.

And also adjusted so that we a toggle for 'Show institution only / Show both site and institution'

I think we'll always need to show the site T&C and institution T&C when an institution has separate ones as there are some T&C for the site that will apply to everyone. Therfore, I don't think we'll need a toggle.

If we require people to accept the T&C (set "Registration agreement" in the "General settings" in the "Site options" to "Yes"), it should not be possible to link to T&C that are not hosted on Mahara, i.e. remove the empty line where we can link somewhere else than a Mahara page.

Changed the description to reference "privacy statement" as that is the immediate item we'll need to work on. Changing the T&C infrastructure can come at a later stage.

There is an item at bug #1739561 to remove the possibility to link to external T&C and privacy statement.

The revised privacy statement should have two sections:

1. Site statement
2. Institution statement.

If we are re-using this page to display elsewhere, it might be good if these two sections were in panels that can be closed.

summary: - Show site and institution T&C in footer when an institution member is
- logged in
+ Show site and institution privacy statements in footer when an
+ institution member is logged in
