No commercial work may have been performed, but was the Tet-On system
purchased from Clontech by a commercial entity, i.e. the small biotech
company and not the academic entity the student was affiliated with?

If it was the former then TET Systems has obtained that information
from Clontech and contacted you on that basis.

As far as I remember (from 1999), there were restrictions on 
commercial use of the Tet-On system.

However, last year, I was contacted by TET Systems to complete a
new "Notice & Acknowledgement" agreement for non-profit users. It was
a little sticky for us, because we have modified the Tet-On system and
published manuscripts with the modified system.
