New magazine on crime prevention seems to be OA

Freedom from Fear is a new magazine of applied research on crime prevention from the Max Planck Institute and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Research Institute (UNICRI).  (Thanks to Klaus Graf.)

The inaugural issue is now online, awkwardly.  Clicking the link doesn't display the PDF or even download the PDF.  It downloads a zip file which unzips into a PDF.  (Why?)

It appears to be OA.  The inaugural issue is gratis OA.  But it doesn't say that it's free or OA.  Nor does it mention subscription prices.  I downloaded and unzipped the inaugural issue and couldn't find any licensing information.
