What a waste of time. As if it makes a difference when considering that most "About" pages are fabricated lies and display headers with group images collected from stock photos, ie: those people that you see smiling at the top of the page have never even heard of the company that owns the site.
How many new start ups do we see that claim to have been in business and experts in the industry since the year nod? ... far too many and they are usually no older than 1-2 years.
If they lie about staff identities and history then they will most certainly be lying about privacy policies or never intending to abide by them.
So if Google places importance on such links as described here, then that's just a another example of a useless policy "imagined" by people who have no real experience.
