We have aimed for AA level of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines are the internationally recognized benchmark for building accessible websites and explain how to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities.
It’s also important to us is that, by working to these guidelines, we make our website more user friendly for all our customers.
