RAW Photo Retouching Copyright Question

Heyo!

I work as a retoucher in NYC and, for practice (since I work with mostly interior design/architecture), I downloaded a set of free RAW headshot images from findretoucher.com. My question is about whether or not I can use a photo on my online portfolio as an example of my work.

The site says:
Quote:
We at FindRetoucher.com know how hard it is to find really good raw images for exercise. Therefore we allows you to download this set of Practice Images completely free and without registration.
* Attention, the Practice Images are subject to intellectual property rights!
In this website (www.findretoucher.com) the users can find photos for practice so they can improve their retouching skills. The Practice Images are offered at no charge and registration. If you download or print a copy of the Practice Images for personal use, you must retain all copyrights to © Photographer, FindRetoucher.com.
Do the bolded sentences mean I can use the image as long as I © put "Photographer's name", FindRetoucher.com below the image? I don't want to "steal" someone's image.

Thanks!

Could go either way; since they offer free RAW files to download, I would assume they're expecting people to retouch and use the files for their portfolio, but +1 on e-mailing to make sure you're good to go.
