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.

The fact that you can't mass download your files easily on GoG is one my greatest annoyances with that site. Yeah, I only own 70 games on there, and that number won't increase now with the price increaes, but I want my backups now because doesn't seem like GoG will exist forever.

I have no trouble downloading 6-8 games at once through my browser--it isn't a problem outside of Galaxy. I only use Galaxy now to update and for the initial install. Also, I download the manual backup installable copies (after installation) whenever I buy from GOG--highly recommended. Doing it that way, you hardly notice the time it takes. As your GOG library grows, so does your local backup library.

I often wonder what will happen to Steam once Gabe goes belly up...;)

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!...:)
