Privacy#

Privacy is an important consideration in all Vale-related development decisions. We've gone to great lengths to ensure that our software has the utmost respect for our users and their content.

Vale (CLI)#

The Vale command-line tool serves as the foundation (functionality-wise) for all of our software and services. It's free, open source, and permissively licensed.

Vale is distributed as a self-contained, standalone binary, and it works entirely offline: We have absolutely zero access to any content linted by Vale.

Vale Server#

Vale Server is graphical user interface (GUI), web-based dashboard, and HTTP server built on top of Vale.

It runs on localhost and uses a local vale executable to perform all of its linting, so it also inherits all of Vale's content-related privacy guarantees.

The only remote communication performed by Vale Server is a license key validation step done at start up. See its Privacy Policy and Terms of Service for more information.

Vale Studio#

Vale Studio is a Heroku-hosted web application. All content submitted through the application is sent to a server to be processed by a remotely-hosted vale executable.

Submissions are limited to 500 characters and are not accessed, analyzed, or stored for any purpose.
