Elsmore Swim Shop is committed in making the website elsmoreswim.com accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. Our goal is to provide an accessible website that conforms to Section 508 Guidelines and the World Wide Web Consortium's Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA. Some existing content may not be in compliance, and some content may meet only the minimum required compliance standards. This will be resolved as we continue our efforts to monitor and maintain acceptable compliance levels.
We continue to make every effort to test the website and to remove barriers that prevent persons with disabilities from interacting with or accessing information made available on our website. If we become aware of content that does not conform to the WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards, we will make every reasonably good faith effort to make the content conform to the standards.
While we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website, particularly as it relates to content by third parties. Elsmore Swim Shop is not responsible for ensuring that third-party content, software/tools, widgets, Add-ins, APIs, etc., which are not owned by Elsmore Swim Shop but are otherwise located on or linked to the Elsmore Swim Shop Website, conform to WCAG 2.1 Level AA, and shall not be liable if they are inaccessible to individuals with disabilities.
While this policy does provide the standard for individuals with disabilities to access Web-based information, this policy cannot anticipate every accessibility need, due to known limitations of existing technology. There may be other circumstances, independent of technology that may limit the accessibility of the Elsmore Swim Shop.
Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessible Content:
Elsmore Swim Shop uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 as its guiding principle. As we develop new pages and functionality, the principles of accessible design and development are an integral part of conception and realization.
We continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet or exceed the standards. Testing of our digital content is performed by our accessibility experts using automated testing, screen readers, a color contrast analyzer, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and a variety of bookmarklets.
