To compensate for the damage suffered by the ERD (think of rented rooms, purchased materials, reputational damage, etc.) and to give everyone a fair chance to participate in popular activities, we apply a penalty policy.
Signing out of an activity of the Erasmus Recruitment Days is only possible through sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or through www.erd.nl/student/activities.
The penalty policy contains the following rules:
For activities during the Erasmus Recruitment Days 2019 (29th January – 14th February):
If you unsubscribe at least two working days before the day your activity takes place, you will not be fined. Beware: only cancellations that are done before 5 pm are accepted.
If you unsubscribe later than 5 pm, two working days before the activity, a fine of €15.00 will be charged.
If you do not unsubscribe at all for an activity at the Erasmus Recruitment Days and do not show up at this activity, a fine of €25.00 will be charged.
For example: If you are selected for an activity where CV-selection applies or for a special day on Friday February 1st, and you unsubscribe before 17:00 on Wednesday January 30st, you will not receive a fine. If you unsubscribe on or after 17:01 on Wednesday January 30st, respectively, a fine of €15.00 will be charged. If you do not unsubscribe at all, a fine of €25.00 will be charged.
The amount of the fine and about whether or not it will be deducted cannot be discussed with the Erasmus Recruitment Days. The Erasmus Recruitment Days obligates herself to be cautious when handling out a fine. Demonstrable errors will be taken into treatment, and if necessary, corrected. The debt collection of the fine will be communicated to the student at least two weeks before.
When a participant is not able to sign off because an event occurred beyond their control, the participant need to contact the Erasmus Recruitment Days within two (2) weeks after the fine is given. The Erasmus Recruitment Days will look in to the case and take a final decision about the fine.

If you have any questions or complaints, you can at all times contact The Erasmus Recruitment Platform by sending an email to email@example.com. We will respond to you as soon as possible.
