Our Accessibility Statement

by Barron Cuadro  |  in

We are committed to making Effortless Gent (“EG”, “effortlessgent.com”, “we”, “us”, “Website”), as accessible as possible to people with special needs, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments. We’re constantly working towards improving the accessibility of the Website to ensure we provide equal access to all of our users.

We always make sure that this Website follows accessibility best practices by following the principles of universal design. This ensures the site is flexible and adaptable to different users’ needs or preferences and is accessible through a variety of different technologies, including mobile devices or assistive technologies.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1

Wherever possible, our Website will adhere to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1, the “Standards”). These guidelines outline four main principles that state that sites should be:

  • Perceivable: Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive
  • Operable: User interface components and navigation must be operable
  • Understandable: Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable
  • Robust: Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies

Working with experienced accessibility professionals, and becoming educated in how to ensure the Website can incorporate these Standards, Effortless Gent has voluntarily undertaken efforts to comply with these Standards and continue to take the steps necessary to achieve substantial conformance to provide a positive experience for our community.

We are aware of some areas on the Website where we could improve accessibility and are working to achieve this and implement the relevant improvements to meet the Standards over time. Please note that our Website may link to, or interface with, third party websites that we do not control.

As websites are constantly evolving, please be aware that our efforts are ongoing. If, at any time, you have any specific questions, feedback, or concerns about the accessibility of any particular pages on EffortlessGent.com, please contact us at [email protected].

If you encounter an accessibility issue, please be sure to specify the page or URL in your email, and we will make all reasonable efforts to address your concerns.
