Acceptance of T&Cs
Please note that these T&Cs are also intended to define certain obligations, commitments and allocations of responsibility between the Provider and the HEIs (including in the person of the managers of the relevant Accounts) from a Data Protection perspective.

The objective of the Erasmus Dashboard is to support HEIs with administrative aspects of the Erasmus+ mobility framework. Therefore, the Erasmus Dashboard is available to HEIs being Erasmus Charter for Higher Education holders. For further information, please follow the following link.
Individuals acting on behalf of an HEI on the Erasmus Dashboard platform may only be individuals of legal age.

In any case, EUF reserves the right at any time to ask for confirmation and/or proof of the truthfulness of the above-mentioned information, including confirmation of the positions held by the managers of the Accounts referring to a specific HEI, as well as the fact that the manager of the Main Institutional Account has the power to commit themselves on behalf of said HEI.

Account use and access
Each Account must refer to a single natural person, identified at the time of its creation, and may not be shared between multiple users or individual persons in general. Violation of the foregoing may result in termination of Accounts at EUF’s sole and absolute discretion.
As noted above, the Main Institutional Account manager is responsible for maintaining up-to-date information on the individual associated with each Staff Account.
HEIs are directly responsible for keeping the Main Institutional Account information up to date. In case of failure to update this information, EUF will have the right, at its sole discretion, to continue to consider the person indicated as the contact person for the relevant HEI, and therefore also able to commit said HEI towards EUF.
