Copyright Student Agreement

Dear student,

We have recently found out that (at least) one of our students was illegally making recordings of an online lesson (students and teachers included). Also, another student was making photos a while ago. Things like these have serious legal consequences. We take the copyright of our intellectual property, the privacy of our students and the Dutch law very seriously!

We want to make sure you know and understand the copyright and privacy rules and the consequences of breaking them. That is why every student of Dutch Academy has to sign the Individual Copyright Student Agreement. This agreement is a part of Terms and Conditions and the Privacy policy of Dutch Academy Eindhoven.

By registering for your course you have agreed to our Terms and Conditions and our Privacy policy. There it is clearly indicated that no recording, taking photos or copying of our Materials, Lessons, book Simpel Nederlands and Websites are allowed! You are NOT allowed to download, print, take pictures, take screenshots, use, post, share, translate, and reproduce in any way any such materials without the prior written consent of Dutch Academy Eindhoven or use them at other places other than your home or Dutch Academy Eindhoven. When you do not comply with our Terms and Conditions, you may be prosecuted and held liable for breaking the Dutch law. It will cost you between 25,000 and 100,000 Euros in privacy and copyright penalties and damages. We advise you to take this warning seriously! It will be also explained in the first lesson.
