    Firstly you should be noindexing your Privacy Policy. Secondly when google ranks a different page it could mean your homepage was hit with an algo penalty.

    You do not want to noindex it, you want to no-follow the internal links to it.

    I find Google makes this error all to often, I always add the NoIndex meta tag to this page. I find it doesn't negatively impact rankings, but prevents it from over taking your home page in the SERPs.
