shop.fourseasons.com and shop.ca.fourseasons.com (collectively, the “Website”), operated by Sobel Westex (www.sobelwestex.com), are committed to providing accessible websites for all our customers, including those who are older and who have disabilities. To achieve this we are continually improving the user experience for everyone and applying the relevant accessibility standard, Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The Website, is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
