Website Accessibility Policy
Annabelle's Candy Co. and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “Annabelle's Candy Co”) is committed to facilitating the accessibility of its websites, applications, online services and similar interactive services (each a “Website”) to all visitors, including people with disabilities. Annabelle's Candy Co is making efforts to maintain and increase the accessibility of its Website to ensure that persons with disabilities have full and equal enjoyment of Annabelle's Candy Co's electronic goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations. Annabelle's Candy Co has established this Website Accessibility Policy (“Policy”) to further ensure that we provide goods, services, information and a retail experience to all of our customers in a manner consistent with this core value.
Annabelle's Candy Co is adopting and implementing procedures to the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level AA (WCAG 2.1 AA) as its web accessibility standard for its Websites and Mobile Applications and continues to make such compliance of its Websites and Mobile Applications a key focus of its software development and design efforts. These efforts have also brought Annabelle's Candy Co into further conformance with Title III of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Annabelle's Candy Co continues to conduct periodic Website accessibility audits and to incorporate ongoing and specific recommendations to facilitate and strengthen accessibility for its Websites and conformance with current WCAG 2.1 AA standards. In a dynamic ever-changing technology environment, Annabelle's Candy Co understands the importance of continually testing its digital properties to ensure consistent experiences are delivered. Annabelle's Candy Co tests and confirms the accessibility of each Website in advance of an initial launch, if applicable, and on a periodic basis thereafter to monitor and test for conformity to WCAG 2.1 AA, Title III of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other accessibility guidelines. Annabelle's Candy Co uses manual, functional and technical methods to conduct the evaluations, which include people with disabilities, to enhance the digital customer experience for people of all abilities. Annabelle's Candy Co provides regular training and education to employees who are central to its Website software and design development on current website accessibility guidelines and principles.\
In our pursuit of web accessibility, we acknowledge certain limitations with our one-step checkout process may affect users with disabilities. These include challenges with decorative Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG ) recognition, inconsistencies in heading and paragraph markup, and difficulties in applying semantic markup. Additionally, autocomplete attributes, color contrast ratios, and mandatory field indicators may not consistently meet accessibility standards. Elements may not effectively convey their states, associations may be missing, and dynamic content changes may not always be communicated promptly. We are committed to ongoing improvements to address these limitations and ensure a more accessible web experience for all users, welcoming feedback to aid in this endeavor.
Some role and state information are missing from content because the Shopify platform does not allow us to make changes to these items. We continue to monitor updates to Shopify that will allow us to provide better accessibility in our checkout process and will make updates when the platform allows for these changes. Please reach out using our Contact Us form so that we can assist you if the issues on the checkout page interfere with completing the checkout process.
