Debian is free software[1], anybody can reproduce CDs for users and charge
whatever they like for that convenience. Equally, any user can choose to
buy CDs from a vendor or download Debian directly - it's their choice.

Regarding partners: The project is run by volunteers;
the companies listed on the partners page are those that have provided
ongoing assistance through hardware, hosting, or some other service.

People who have given financial donations are recognised differently [2].
