Where to see El Capitan's EULA and Privacy Statements once OS installed

hi OSX folks

as the title suggested, where can i read the EULA, Privacy Statement, Terms and Conditions of El Capitan once the OS has been installed?

i believe i did see them, though not well read, during the OS installation. I believe most users just simply skip reading it and click the Agree button straight away. for some reasons i need to read it again.

where to find them from the current OS installation? or from somewhere online at Apple's website?

thanks heaps in advance,
bbao

thanks for the prompt reply. it is a large document, in 100 languages? :)

the document has only one section, see below, dedicated for privacy regarding the use of users' data. however it points to Apple website for the up to date version of their privacy policy.

4. Consent to Use of Data. When you use the various communication features of the Apple Software, such as iMessage and FaceTime, with your computer, the Apple ID information you provide, your email address(es), certain unique identifiers for your computer and your iPhone’s telephone number are sent to Apple in order to allow others to reach you. When you use iMessage, Apple may hold your messages in encrypted form for a limited period of time in order to ensure their delivery. You may turn off FaceTime or iMessage by going to the FaceTime or Messages preferences on your Mac. Certain features like Diagnostics & Usage, Location Services, Dictation and Spotlight may require information from your computer to provide their respective functions. When you turn on or use these features, details will be provided regarding what information is sent to Apple and how the information may be used. You can learn more by visiting http://www.apple.com/privacy/. At all times your information will be treated in accordance with Apple’s Privacy Policy, which can be viewed at: http://www.apple.com/legal/privacy/.

it seems Apple keeps updating their privacy policy time to time. the latest version i just saw was updated on May 31, 2016.

is it possible to find the specific version (especially for privacy related statements) that *I* agreed when i was installing the OS. i guess it might be somewhere on my computer?
