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.

Gog is going to be fine; this Direct to Account aspect should let them sell Gog Keys easier through resellers, Humble Bundles, other stores, etc.

Gog has had that wording or something close to it in their EULA for awhile now(about downloading copies, etc.)

Don't forget that CDProjekt RED is lurking behind, hopefully still overflowing with Witcher money.

All of that said, hopefully these moves put Gog back into the black financially.

I agree with this...nothing here really to make one think they were in any kind of financial straits. It's not even clear that GOG is in the "red" (except of course for CDPRed...;))
It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)
