Declaration on accessibility
This declaration applies to the websites published under the domain www.klicksafe.de.
The EU initiative klicksafe strives to make its digital offerings accessible without barriers. The legal basis for this is the State Law on Equality for Disabled Persons (LGGBehM) and the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance of Rhineland-Palatinate (BITV-RP).
The accessibility requirements result from §§ 3 paragraphs 1 to 4 and 4 of BITV 2.0, which was issued on the basis of § 12d BGG.
Compliance with the requirements on the website www.klicksafe.de was audited by an independent expert. The requirements of the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) were taken into account.
The audit was conducted between June 9 and August 11, 2022. Basic functionalities were examined on the basis of representative URLs as well as store functionalities in the material system. The test procedure used is based on the specifications of the "BIK BITV test" and comprises 92 test steps according to EN 301 549, which relate to the accessibility of web offerings.
The website is only partially compatible with the legal requirements. Examples of content or areas that are currently not (fully) accessible:
- Not all graphics are provided with alternative text.
- Color contrast is insufficient in a few places.
- Accordion elements are not controllable via keyboard.
- The slider on the start page cannot be paused.
- No feedback is given to users when updating the shopping cart.
- PDF documents offered for download are not accessible.
- Video downloads and embedded videos are only partially subtitled, audio descriptions for image sequences without dialog or full text alternatives are not available.
Accessibility is part of the current development of our website. We are continuously working on removing existing barriers.
