Mike, I would add a note on to the effect that TDF does not charge for any available download of LO products.

In addition, there's now a version offered under official license from TDF also for the Windows Store:

Answer from the FAQ at

Likely not. LibreOffice is free and open source software and can be redistributed by other people, subject to the license. But if you want the official version from The Document Foundation, you should always download it from our website. Note that some of our Certified Developers provide their own versions of LibreOffice with long-term support options.
