ADA Website Compliance & Disclaimer — Wilmington Historical Society (NY)
We, at the Wilmington Historical Society (NY), are committed to making our website accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. Our goal is to provide an accessible website that conforms to Section 508 Guidelines and the World Wide Web Consortium’s Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA. Some current content may not be in compliance, and some content may meet only the minimum required compliance standards. This will be resolved in the future as we continue our efforts to monitor and maintain acceptable compliance levels. While every effort will be made, it is understood that creating accessible formats for some documentation and certain graphical renderings maintained by us may be technologically unfeasible or impractical.
We continue to make every effort to test the website and to remove barriers that prevent persons with disabilities from interacting with or accessing information made available on our website. If we become aware of content that does not conform to the WCAG 2.0 Level AA standards, we will make reasonable good faith efforts to make the content conform to the standards. We cannot control or correct problems with third-party sites, but please let us know if you encounter difficulty with any of the sites we may link to so we can pass the information along to the owners of those websites. You may also want to address your concerns directly to these third parties.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 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. To the best of our understanding, this site should be conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA.
While this policy does provide the standard for individuals with disabilities to access Web-based information, this policy cannot anticipate every accessibility need, due to known limitations of existing technology. There may be other circumstances, independent of technology that may limit the accessibility of this website.

While we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website, particularly as it relates to content by third parties. We are not responsible for ensuring that third-party content, software/tools, widgets, Add-ins, APIs, etc., which are not owned by us but are otherwise located on or linked to other websites, conform to WCAG 2.0 Level AA, and we shall not be liable if they are inaccessible to individuals with disabilities.
We are committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities, and continually improve the user experience for everyone by applying the relevant accessibility standards.
