you have reached a mailing list, so this will be available to everyone
who is interested.

Now let's see...

Depends on the platform - the choices imply that you are using a
Microsoft Windows platform, so *.exe is probably what you want. The
downloads are at http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

GIMP can certainly run on a server, but the usual installation method is
on client PCs.

I can't think of any special requirements here.

This is easy - GIMP is licensed under the GNU GPL, and this license puts
no restrictions on usage: https://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html

Note that you can be required to pay attention to its terms regarding
distribution, see

No, a normal user can't install the program- the installers available
from http://www.gimp.org require admin rights (again, assuming this is
about a Windows platform)

It doesn't admin right to be run, but it can be run with admin rights
(no sure if I get that questions correctly).

None that we know of.

Not really - you might want to make sue that the online help is
accessible unless you plan to install that locally, but that is just
HTTP on standard ports.

The usual method is to download from http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
