Because the Company is committed as a matter of its organizational policy and commercial operations to website accessibility for all users, including all users with disabilities, it has been and continues to be the Company’s express policy, which will be implemented with the additional guidance of both counsel and an independent third-party accessibility expert, to devote its resources to continually enhance its Website’s design and features so as not to discriminate against or deny access to any disabled users of the Website.  The Company shall also make available on its Website a dedicated accessibility email address in order to address any accessibility issues that individual users of the Website may encounter and for which they seek a reasonable accommodation or auxiliary aid.         

To assist in achieving the aforementioned accessibility goals with respect to the Website, the Company has committed to the Website being designed, developed, and operated in accordance with generally recognized and accepted guidelines and/or standards for website accessibility (the “Standards”). While these Standards may change and/or evolve over time, they are currently at least the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 at Levels A and AA (“WCAG 2.0”). [2]  

Working with a retained accessibility consultant, the Company will be further implementing over time the relevant portions of the Standards, which will also bring the Website into further conformance with the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board (Section 508).  The Website will be tested on a periodic basis with assistive technology such as screen readers and screen magnifiers, and by users with disabilities who use these technologies.
