Your privacy matters — own it.

Overview

People are evolving, businesses are evolving, laws are evolving and Vael is creating the next evolution of the internet. We're making the internet a place that works for everyone. The internet may seem like an established goliath, but the age of living on the internet is still in its infancy. There is a privacy revolution happening within technology and society at large. Now is the time to make the greatest change. People are no longer nomads crossing the digital continents of the internet, they are settlers. It is time for people to own their data. It is time for businesses to get ethical data. It is time for internet 3.0.

Mission Statement

At Vael, we know that every human being is different. It's our unique qualities that make people great — and data valuable. We strive to help people define what makes them different and give people the ability to take ownership of their data.

What We Do

Vael is creating CCPA compliant software to build tomorrow’s marketplace for consumer data.

Who We Do it For

Californians

  • All 40 million people that live in the state of California
  • There is no easy way for Californians to begin taking action on their CCPA data rights. Vael helps Californians take control of their privacy by helping them submit their CCPA data requests at scale. Using laws like CCPA, we help consumers begin the process of actually owning their data.

Businesses subject to CCPA

  • The 570,000+ business subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)*
  • *Berkeley Economic Advising Research, LLC

  • CCPA compliance is difficult, time consuming, and expensive for companies of all sizes. Vael makes CCPA work for businesses, while keeping them in compliance with the law.
