The images need to be purchased for NON-PERSONAL USE
Basically, the criterion for making the distinction between non-personal and personal is that when an organisation wants to license a photo it is non-personal. Another way of looking at it is, if it is not for the use of an individual (e.g. to use as wallpaper on their computer, or to make a print for their wall) then it is non-personal.
Please note that an "organisation" includes not-for-profit bodies, non-government organisations, voluntary groups, charities, as well as all commercial organisations.
