If you seek to generate income with your website, then it's not a
not-for-profit one anymore but a for-profit one and is actually
commercial.  Several of our sponsors are universities which have
strict profit/non-profit policies.  For sure, my university had
to terminate providing a mirror once such advertisments occur.
I'm pretty sure about a similar policy in Dresden where the mirror
www.de.debian.org is located.
