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.

It's a perfectly viable backup strategy in the context of this discussion. We're not talking about an enterprise backup solution in a corporate environment, we're talking backing up game installers from GOG FFS.

In your universe you may consider that "perfectly viable". It's your data so do what you want with it. Any loss is your problem to deal with.

If we were talking about an enterprise backup solution, we'd be discussing a level of cost that is beyond the average consumer. However, we're not discussing that are we? We're discussing robust, functional, and manageable NAS deployments that provide redundancy and resiliency. Two key points your solution would utterly fail a simple audit on.

I also addressed further upthread that once you have a NAS, you start using it for far more than "game installers" because you begin to realize the usefulness of it. So instead of looking at it from a single use case, it would be better to look at it as a multi-use case and design around that. I'd rather have something that has a lifecycle that looks further down the road and provides the flexibility to meet changing demands. I'd also rather recommend that so people who follow that advice are happier for longer periods of time.

But you do you.
