I'm almost done with my personal game. One of the reasons I started this is because of monetization. I plan to monetize it using Google Admob. However, I need some icons - essential part of my game.

And these icons are free, released by a certain company, and they say in their download page:

These icons are free for personal use or commercial testing purposes. Otherwise, you'll need a Premium or Enterprise license. :)

Question is, does "Personal Use" mean I can earn from it?

Also, this "personal game" is actually "under" a group named, say "XXX". The group "XXX" is merely a group name, not a company, not legal/registered, just literally a group name on Github. And this group is composed of 3 people and that includes me. Does this kind of setup go under the "personal use"?

If you are earning money from the game, that is commerce, ie. commercial use.

You would need to ask for a licence for commercial use, or replace these assets with ones that permit commercial use.
