Bug Description

The /etc/os-release standard includes a PRIVACY_POLICY_URL field.

Ubuntu should implement this and set it to:

This field is actually used by the GNOME Settings app (gnome-control-center) although we need a few other pieces for it to be shown to users. (See bug 1614820 if you're curious about that).

Patch attached.
