Web Accessibility Policy
Shumway Dental Care has always strived to provide services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities. We have established policies and procedures to ensure we provide goods and services to all of our clients and photographic subjects in a manner consistent with this core value.
It is Shumway Dental Care’s policy to remove barriers to full access to our products and services whenever that is readily achievable, and to develop products and services with accessibility standards taken into account. Shumway Dental Care is committed to ensuring the accessibility of its facilities to persons with disabilities, including accessibility to our websites. To achieve this goal, we have adopted this policy and a plan of implementation that includes the following initiatives:
- Accessibility Guidelines – We have put in place processes to make accessibility and meeting the criteria known as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 AA, as recommended by the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium, integral to our software development efforts, design specifications and product roadmaps. We will measure and track our progress to ensure we continually make improvements to address the evolving industry standards and to meet the accessibility needs of our customers and visitors to our websites.
- Employee Training – Accessibility is central to our design and development efforts. Employees who are central to those roles will be educated and trained on accessibility guidelines to support compliance with this policy.
- Alternatives – Shumway Dental Care offers alternate measures for accessibility of current content and services available on the Shumway Dental Care website. The alternate measures provide accessible means for persons with disabilities to access any inaccessible content or services on the Shumway Dental Care website until remediated or replaced with conforming equivalents. Alternate measures can be initiated by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shumway Dental Care will develop its websites, applications, online services and similar interactive services (each a “Web Property”) to the criteria known as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 AA, as recommended by the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium (the “Accessibility Guidelines”). Shumway Dental Care will test and confirm the accessibility of each Web Property to the Accessibility Guidelines in advance of initial launch and thereafter at appropriate intervals. In the event that an Accessibility Guideline is not met, Shumway Dental Care will require corrective action. If corrective action to meet the applicable Accessibility Guideline is not readily achievable, Shumway Dental Care will ensure that a reasonable alternative measure is available to ensure accessibility to the service or feature affected by the nonconformity until the Guideline is met.
Upon attainment of the Accessibility Guidelines for a Web Property, Shumway Dental Care will annually monitor the Web Property and test for conformity to the Accessibility Guidelines in any newly created content for such Web Property.
Website Accessibility Coordinator
Dr. Andrew Shumway having responsibility for a Web Property will serve as its Website Accessibility Lead. The Website Accessibility Lead will be responsible for adherence to the Accessibility Policy and the implementation of this plan to achieve and maintain the Accessibility Guidelines for the Shumway Dental Care Web Property.
Prior to achieving complete conformity with the Accessibility Guidelines, Shumway Dental Care will implement, on an interim basis, alternate measures for accessibility of current content and services available on the applicable Web Property. The alternate measures will provide accessible means for persons with disabilities to access any inaccessible content or services on the applicable Shumway Dental Care Web Property until the Accessibility Standard is fully implemented. Alternate measures can be accessed by sending an email to email@example.com or by calling the customer service department associated with the Web Property.
Complaints and Responses
Questions or complaints regarding a Shumway Dental Care Web Property may be directed to Shumway Dental Care by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of the Shumway Dental Care Law Department will review the question or complaint and respond with regard to the nature of the question or complaint, including in such response the referral to alternative assistive measures which may resolve or address the question or complaint.
The Website Accessibility Leads will provide training to all Shumway Dental Care personnel involved in servicing e-commerce through the Shumway Dental Care Web Properties regarding (a) the requirements of website accessibility pursuant to the Accessibility Guidelines, (b) the technology providing accessibility to the website, and (c) the content of this Shumway Dental Care Website Accessibility Policy.
