The terms seem more inclusive than you say above. They say,
"# You may modify or use the source code for other non-commercial, not-for-profit research endeavours, provided that all
copyright attribution on the source code is retained, and the original or modified source code is not redistributed, in whole or
in part, or included in or with any commercial product, except by written agreement with the authors, and full and complete
attribution for use of the code is given in any resulting publications."
So, I read that as Give full credit in any publication, (read website), and use the source code for other non-commercial,
not-for-profit research endeavours. They're not saying they give a license to make anything profitable at all it seems.
