You must be at least 18 years old to access or use the Services and be an Erasmus student.

If you register with your email address, you agree to create a unique password that you do not use with any other online product or service.

3.1 You Have Sole Responsibility When Interacting with Other Members. Our Services provide a platform for members to learn about one another, arrange stays and travel, engage in activities and communicate with one another. DOT-E is not a party to, has no involvement or interest in, makes no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between you and any other member, person or organization. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other members of our Services. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor interactions between you and other members of our Services. Remember, the DOT-E Services are just a platform that enable you to communicate and interact with other people around the world. We cannot be responsible for the interactions that you have with other DOT-E members, so please use good judgment and keep safety in mind when you use our Services. 3.2 Identity Verification. We cannot and do not confirm each member’s identity. Although we provide tools intended to assist with identity verification, such as our OLS verification tool (as described in Section 3.3), you are solely responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others with whom you may interact through our Services. DOT-E does not represent or warrant that our tools are sufficient to determine whether it is appropriate for you to interact with another member. Further, we do not endorse any persons who use or register for our Services. We do not investigate or verify any member’s reputation, conduct, morality, criminal background, or any information members may submit to the Services (other than the OLS-verification tool as described in Section 3.3). We encourage you to take precautions when interacting with other members, particularly when meeting a stranger in person for the first time. 3.3 Our OLS-Verification Tool. Our OLS verification tool is intended merely to confirm that the e-mail address a member submits to us is an address at which that member is able to access or receive e-mail and that the e-mail address has received e-mails from OLS. DOT-E’s OLS verification tool is not intended to confirm that a member actually is an Erasmus. While this is one of many ways to reduce the risk of misconduct by a member, it is not a guarantee of any member’s identity or good faith. 3.4 Release. Because our Services are merely a platform, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more members, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law you full release us (and our officers, directors, members, employees, agents and affiliates) from any claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
Separate and apart from Member Content, we welcome questions, comments, suggestions and ideas about DOT-E and our Services (“Submissions”).

DOT-E shall own exclusive rights, including all intellectual property rights, and shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of Submissions for any purpose, commercial or otherwise. You acknowledge that DOT-E is not obligated to provide acknowledgment or compensation to you in exchange for Submissions.
