Errr..... no. Downloading Noobs doesn't require you to register for something that includes a 13 (yes, thirteen!) page agreement including such gems as....

'you may experience occasional crashes and data loss'

'The Program Services, if installed on a mobile device, may inadvertently damage your device rendering it inoperable.'

'The Program Services may automatically collect and transmit data to Microsoft and its partners regarding activities on your devices, including personal information'

'The Program Services may stop working, be updated, or removed from your device automatically without notice'

'From time to time, Microsoft may change or amend these terms..... You agree to visit the Program Website at least once every 30 days to check for potential notice of changes.'

'By using the Program Services, you agree to receive automatic updates without any additional notice, and permit Microsoft to download and install them for you. You agree to obtain these updates only from Microsoft or Microsoft authorized sources.'

'Limited or no support may be provided for the Program Services.'

'Software is licensed under the terms of this Agreement, but it may also include additional license terms.'

'Some or all of the Software may cease working on its expiration date. You have no right to use the Software after its expiration date.'

'Microsoft reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Program Services at any time, without notice, for any reason whatsoever.'

Totally gobsmacked
