It would be,
" --, However, If you include them in the commercial collection of
materials, please contact me beforehand."
It regards them("commercial" collection of materials) as an exception.
NG: "commercial" collection of materials
OK: collection of materials
OK: other products
I interpreted this as a commercial work, as a "commercial collection of materials" (商用の素材集) would be including or using the sound files in any kind of commercial work. I suppose I might be a little fuzzy as what doesn't constitute a "commercial collection of materials".
i.e. what falls into the "other products" category.

I'll contact the author, if I may.
I think that would be best.
