      Description

      Dear all,

      MDL-62558 has introduced a link which is called "Data retention summary" (id="dataretentionsummary", pointing to /admin/tool/dataprivacy/summary.php) in the users profile (/user/profile.php) and in the footer section of our whole Moodle site.

      It would be a great improvement to MDL-62558 , if the administrator could choose, if this link is shown or hidden in any place.

      We currently do not plan to use this feature, as we do not have any plans to define our periods within Moodle. As this link currently can not be hidden in any good way, our users are confronted with lacking information in popular places. This creates a confusing experience for them.

      A simple checkbox, to show or hide these links in the users profile and the footer would solve our problem. Thanks in advance for considering it.
