Statement of Accessibility
April 29, 2019
PierSixty continues its commitment to providing a website accessible to the
largest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. In order to further this
commitment, PierSixty staff contracted an independent third-party (Promet Source) for an
accessibility audit and review according to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA guidelines.
On April 29, 2019, Promet Source will begin a manual review of the PierSixty website and digital properties, consisting of the following pages:
Additionally, on April 29, 2019, Promet Source will begin its automated review of the PierSixty website and its digital properties contained therein. The automated review will provide a comprehensive list of any compliance issues in addition to warnings. The properties involved will be provided as a sitemap (available upon request). The automated review will provide a comprehensive list of any compliance issues in addition to warnings.
Due to PierSixty’s integration with external vendors, areas within the site remain beyond PierSixty’s control. These elements include (but is not limited to):
- Google Maps
Until the integration with these external vendors is resolved, PierSixty can only achieve a partial level of conformance according to WCAG.
Once Promet Source has concluded its accessibility audit, it will provide the results to PierSixty.
PierSixty is actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of the website and in doing so adheres to many of the available standards and guidelines.
PierSixty does not discriminate in its education and employment programs on the
basis of religion, age, race, color, national origin, gender, marital or parental status, or disability and complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX Education Amendments of
1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA) of 1990.
In order to further our commitment to nondiscrimination, we are continuing to work on the
website in order to ensure the site conforms to level Double-A World Wide Web Consortium
(W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Such guidelines detail best practices
for ensuring assistive technology users can access the site. The guidelines also make the site
more user friendly for all people.
Should anyone find information or functionality which is inaccessible, please contact Leonard Lorenzo at (212)336-6133 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make every reasonable effort to accommodate.
