GOG.com Announces GOG Direct to Account

The flurry of activity at GOG.com continues, as the DRM-free game store is updating their EULA and Privacy Policy following recent news of layoffs and the end of their Fair Price Package program. That latter news in part of the update, which also describes a new functionality called GOG Direct to Account "that will enable partnered platforms to activate, directly on your GOG.COM account, content purchased via these selected third party platforms." Here are the changes, which are set to roll out 30 days from now:

We’re updating our User Agreement and Privacy Policy, the documents that govern our relationship with you.

Why?
We want to let you know about few changes: (1) We’re adding a new functionality - GOG Direct to Account that will enable partnered platforms to activate, directly on your GOG.COM account, content purchased via these selected third party platforms; (2) we’re concluding the Fair Price Package program that some users were eligible for. For more details please see here. (3) We’ve also refreshed our Voluntary Refund Policy now offering refunds for GOG Wallet funds.

What?
We wanted to reflect all this in our policies. Plus we did some minor tidying up of the documents. You can see the updated terms here.

How?
We’re notifying you now by email, the updated versions are on the GOG.COM website and the changes take effect 30 days from now (you'll find more information about this in our User Agreement).

Do I need to do anything?
Nope.

What if I have questions?
Please contact us here and we’ll be happy to help.

I really don't feel like coughing up $950 dollars for a NAS to safeguard my $517 gog library. smh


edit
The WD 10TB Elements Desktop Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBWLG0100HBK-NESN
is $159 deal of the day at Amazon. Good for shucking and filling up those nas holes.

You don't need a fancy NAS or big ass USB3 drive just to backup your games. You can get a a USB3/eSATA dock pretty cheap and use old/spare drives or just buy regular old drives to backup to. I have an eSATA dock (also works in USB3), and several drives I backup to, plus a USB3 drive I keep important files on and stored in a fire safe. I like to have redundant backups. Most of my backup drives are old drives from past systems that otherwise would be collecting dust.
good ideas, thanks
