About us

Eau de Web is a Romanian software company specialised in Web development. We’re in business in this formula since 2006, but most of us have worked together as a team since 1999.

We attend trainings and conferences all the time and we keep ourselves informed about new technologies, solutions and standards. This allows us use emerging technology when developing applications and also suggest the suitable solutions to our clients when we start new ones.

Our products and services respect modern standards for accessibility, syndication and Web services. Most of our work is open source and that’s the way we like it.

Over the years we worked a lot with content management systems and portal toolkits so we eventually built our own. It’s called Naaya, it’s made in Zope and it’s fully open source. It’s our pride and joy because it’s simple to use, simple to extend and elegant to program. We’ll have a website for it soon.

Web applications’ interoperability is a big component of our work, so we’ve been increasingly involved into the Semantic Web principles and tools, working with SEIS and Open Data guidelines and implementations.

The name

Eau de Web is a paraphrase of eau de parfum, meaning a fragrance of Web, close to its essence.

Eau de Web’s Manifesto

The drives of our activities are the open source culture and the use of open standards due to the benefits of code reuse, openness in participating in projects worldwide, peer review and contributions from a wide community of developers.

Work with us

The office is located near Arcul de Triumf, in a quiet neighborhood, some of us even bike to work. There’s a fully equipped kitchen, also an espresso machine with the best italian coffee, and an exquisite selection of teas. We don’t cut corners on office furniture and IT - dual monitors and your choice of linux, windows or mac.

We use any excuse to organize a social evening with poker and board games. The company pays for gym membership and the odd wine party. We go to conferences and regularly order technical books.

Over time we learned to work profesionally. All code is under version control (Eionet’s svn repository, our github account), we write unit tests, any important change goes through peer code review, and we pair program when it makes sense. Deployment to staging and production is automated, and we have specialized people for testing and system administration. We also have close, long-term relationships with our clients , and we work in small iterations with quick feedback.

Naaya

Naaya is an open source portal toolkit with support for content management, multilinguality, syndication and friendly through-the-web site administration for webmasters with all kinds of technical backgrounds.

Naaya target users are people that want to quickly start a website and reduce to a minimum the need to refer to technical system administrators for its update and maintenance. They can delegate authority for content management and local administration to a team of non-technical contributors. Naaya is also suitable for networks of portals, because of the integrated search across multiple sites, skinable layout and support for creating self-installable toolkits.

License

All Naaya components are released under the Mozilla Public License (MozPL or MPL). Read about the license explained on the Eionet portal.

After this period, it is likely your data will no longer be relevant for the purposes for which it was collected.

For those Candidates whose services are provided via a third party company or other entity, “meaningful contact” with you means meaningful contact with the company or entity which supplies your services. Where we are notified by such company or entity that it no longer has that relationship with you, we will retain your data for no longer than two years from that point or, if later, for the period of two years from the point we subsequently have meaningful contact directly with you.

When we refer to “meaningful contact”, we mean, for example, communication between us (either verbal or written), or where you are actively engaging with our services. If you are a Candidate we will consider there to be meaningful contact with you if you submit your updated CV onto our website or take part in any of our projects. We will also consider it meaningful contact if you communicate with us about potential roles, either by verbal or written communication or click through from any of our marketing communications. Your receipt, opening or reading of an email or other digital message from us will not count as meaningful contact – this will only occur in cases where you click-through or reply directly.


HOW CAN YOU ACCESS, AMEND OR TAKE BACK THE PERSONAL DATA THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN TO US?

One of the GDPR’s main objectives is to protect and clarify the rights of EU citizens and individuals in the EU with regards to data privacy. This means that you retain various rights in respect of your data, even once you have given it to us. These are described in more detail below.

To get in touch about these rights, please contact us. We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event within one month (subject to any extensions to which we are lawfully entitled). Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise

Right to object: this right enables you to object to us processing your personal data where we do so for one of the following four reasons:

  1. our legitimate interests;
  2. to enable us to perform a task in the public interest or exercise official authority;
  3. to send you direct marketing materials; and
  4. for scientific, historical, research, or statistical purposes.

The “legitimate interests” and “direct marketing” categories above are the ones most likely to apply to our Website Users, Candidates, Clients and Suppliers. If your objection relates to us processing your personal data because we deem it necessary for your legitimate interests, we must act on your objection by ceasing the activity in question unless:

Right to withdraw consent: Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal data for certain activities (for example, for our communication arrangements or automatic profiling), you may withdraw this consent at any time and we will cease to carry out the particular activity that you previously consented to unless we consider that there is an alternative reason to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose in which case we will inform you of this condition.

Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR): You may ask us to confirm what information we hold about you at any time, and request us to modify, update or Delete such information. We may ask you to verify your identity and for more information about your request. If we provide you with access to the information we hold about you, we will not charge you for this unless your request is “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost where legally permissible. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request we will always tell you the reasons for doing so.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject access requests and may refuse your request in accordance with such laws. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please send an email to dpo@eaudeweb.ro.

Right to erasure: You have the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances. Normally, the information must meet one of the following criteria:

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject right to erasure and may refuse your request in accordance with local laws. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please send an email to dpo@eaudeweb.ro.

We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for one of the following reasons:

Right to restrict processing: You have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that we can only continue to store your data and will not be able to carry out any further processing activities with it until either:

  1. one of the circumstances listed below is resolved;
  2. you consent; or
  3. further processing is necessary for either the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, the protection of the rights of another individual, or reasons of important EU or Member State public interest.

The circumstances in which you are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data are:

If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.

Right to rectification: You also have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Where appropriate, we will also tell you which third parties we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.

Right of data portability: If you wish, you have the right to transfer your personal data between data controllers. In effect, this means that you are able to transfer your Eau de Web account details to another online platform. To allow you to do so, we will provide you with your data in a commonly used machine-readable format that is password-protected so that you can transfer the data to another online platform. Alternatively, we may directly transfer the data for you. This right of data portability applies to:

  1. personal data that we process automatically (i.e. without any human intervention);
  2. personal data provided by you; and
  3. personal data that we process based on your consent or in order to fulfill a contract.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority. In Romania this authority is here http://www.dataprotection.ro/.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, or withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data (where consent is our legal basis for processing your personal data), please send an email to dpo@eaudeweb.ro. Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.

You may ask to unsubscribe from job alerts/or any ways of email communications at any time. Just please send an email to dpo@eaudeweb.ro.

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during the period for which we hold your data.
