Accessibility and Equitable Use Statement – Atelier Belar

At Atelier Belar, we are committed to ensuring accessibility and equitable use for all visitors to our online store. We strive to make our website user-friendly, inclusive, and accessible to individuals of all abilities. This Accessibility and Equitable Use Statement outlines our ongoing efforts to enhance the accessibility of our website and provide an exceptional online shopping experience for everyone.

Striving for seamless, accessible, and unhindered use of our website by all customers and potential customers is a paramount objective. Progress toward this goal often hinges on our awareness of any specific challenges users may face when navigating the website, as well as the availability of resources and advancements in technology.

While we endeavor to ensure equitable use and accessibility in accordance with standard business practices for a company of our size and resources, certain content, features, processes, or policies may benefit from improvement. Therefore, we greatly appreciate your suggestions as we continuously seek to enhance our website’s usability and accessibility.

Procurement and Third-Party Applications

In our procurement process and utilization of Third-Party Applications, as well as certain content, we strive to identify and address any accessibility or equitable use issues that may arise. Whenever feasible, we engage in testing and remediation efforts to ensure accessibility. Additionally, we encourage third-party application providers to integrate accessibility and equitable use features into their offerings as part of universal design principles.

Certain functionalities on our website may rely on third-party add-ons or “plug-ins,” such as social media feeds, among others. It’s important to note that these plug-ins may not function uniformly for every user or accommodate every type of disability. We lack control over the architecture and customization options of these plug-ins, limiting our ability to tailor them to individual user needs.

We acknowledge that our control over these elements is restricted. Therefore, we cannot guarantee uniform accessibility for all users. However, we are dedicated to addressing any issues that may arise. If you encounter accessibility challenges while using our website due to third-party elements, we encourage you to reach out to us. Your feedback is invaluable as we strive to enhance the accessibility and usability of our platform.
