   The license allows you to do what I've described.  Making
   derivative works with permission is not copyright infringement.

This is not what you asked, you asked if you could combine non-free
software with a GPLed work internally.  The GPL does not allow this,
so you have no permissions to do so be it for your private use or not.

   Your statement differs from what the FSF has said.

No, they do not.

   I'm not asking anything.  I'm describing what the license says.

No, you did not.
