    I am a bit confuse to the following term.

    http://www.aversis.be/extras/terms.htm

    2. Free Content found on the Site can only be downloaded for non-commercial, personal usage.

    I understand that we can use those free content for my own blog, but what if my blog have adsense or link ads? Does it still consider non commercial and personal usage?

    The term cited means that you can only use the content for personal use, for example, quoting it in your blog. You cannot, however, use it to make money, for instance, creating a report using the content, and then offering the report for sale, or offering it as a free "bonus" to get people to sign up at an affiliate website. The presence of adsense ads or link ads on your blog have nothing to do with it, unless you sell the content through an adsense or link ad on your blog.
