If you want to cancel your membership, you have to send an email to email@example.com including your name, your student number and a formal statement of cancellation of your membership. This has to be done before the 31st of August of the new academic year.

4.10. Membership termination by Sefa
Sefa has the right to terminate a membership for no or any reason, at any time, with or without notice.
5.1. Event participation
You need to have at least a free basic membership to participate in a Sefa event. By agreeing with the general terms and conditions, you will become a free basic member when registering for a Sefa event.
5.2. Changes in the programme
Sefa retains the right to make changes to event programmes at all times. Sefa will do everything within her power to ensure the offered components will take place.
5.3. CV selection
Some Sefa events include a CV selection. Through the use of CV selection, the sponsor can choose students whom match with its preferred job profile and wishes.
(i) Sefa handles your personal details very confidentially and will, apart from making your CV anonymous, not apply any changes. In the process of making your CV anonymous, we will remove your contact details (i.e. telephone number, address, city and e-mail).
(ii) Sefa can in no way influence the selection of students. Exclusively the participating sponsors will execute the selection of students.
(iii) Sefa is in no way responsible when a sponsor in which the student is interested does not select a student.
(iv) When there are conflicts within the Sefa event programme, a CV selection component will outweigh a component without CV selection. In addition, individual conversations, breakfast, lunch or dinner are considered more consequential than a case with CV selection. Accordingly, Sefa keeps the right to adjust any overlaps in the student’s timetable. Where possible, these possible adjustments are made in consultation with the student. However, the student’s final timetable and the activities he/she is selected for are indisputable by Sefa.
(v) After the student participated in (parts of) a Sefa event devoted to a specific sponsor including CV selection, Sefa has the right to hand over the full CV from that student to that particular sponsor
5.4. No-Show policy
5.4.1 Career Events
Participating in a career event is free. To give everyone a fair chance to participate in popular activities, we apply a no-show policy. The policy contains the following rules:
(i) If you unsubscribe at least two workdays before the day your activity takes place, you won’t receive a fine. Beware: only cancellations before 5 PM will be accepted.
(ii) If you unsubscribe later than 5 PM, two days before the activity, a fine of €15,- will be charged.
For example: If you are registered for an activity at Career Week on Thursday 26th of November you need to deregister at least before 5 PM on Tuesday 24th of November in order to not get a fine. If you deregister at 5:01 PM on 24th of November, this means a fine will be charged.
Please keep in mind that we are strict regarding late cancellations or no-shows, because of the arrangements we have made with our partners.
5.5. Special circumstances
In case of special circumstances, such as the cancellation or relocation of a Sefa event, Sefa will inform the Sefa members as good as possible. In case of the cancellation of a Sefa event because of circumstances beyond Sefa’s control, Sefa is not liable to repay the participation fee. If a withdrawal from participation is being done in less than five days prior to the Sefa event, Sefa is permitted to collect an additional cancellation fee.
