Is a business or non profit making website?

I've often wondered to the owners of the hotukdeals wbsite make any money through running this website. Is there a commission for every click to an external website, or is it strictly non profit making run by the members for the members? I noticed ads appearing on the iphone app, but haven't noticed any on the main website.

I hope I haven't offended anyone by asking the question, it is just something I'd like to know!

How HotUKDeals is funded

We don't run banner ads on the site, sell ad space, use your email address for marketing or sell your details to other parties. We keep the site funded and running by using commission links on merchants where HUKD receives a commission if a product is purchased. As members submit and vote on deals we believe this keeps the site unbiased but if you have concerns please post and discuss them with us and other members in the Feedback section.

It makes a healthy profit but it wont spend any money on developing the site.
It leaves it with loads of bugs 'cos it is too tight to pay for proper programmers.

and it also takes them the best part of 5 months to stump up for some crappy tshirts and amazon vouchers.
