LC3 Creative LLC. strives to ensure that its clients and their services are accessible to people with disabilities. As a group, we have invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that our websites are made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities. It is of our belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence - and to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use for all.
In an ongoing effort to continually improve and remediate accessibility issues, we also regularly scan all of the websites under our stewardship with UserWay's Accessibility Scanner to identify and fix every possible accessibility barrier on our site. Despite our efforts to make all pages and content fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
At LC3 Creative, we are never influenced by issues regarding race, gender, creed, color, age or disability.
LC3 Creative LLC. takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of LC3 Creative and our client's websites:
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is a "civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. It affords similar protections against discrimination to Americans with disabilities as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which made discrimination based on race, religion, sex, national origin, and other characteristics illegal, and later sexual orientation and gender identity. In addition, unlike the Civil Rights Act, the ADA also requires covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities, and imposes accessibility requirements on public accommodations."

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is developed through the W3C process in cooperation with individuals and organizations around the world, with a goal of providing a single shared standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments internationally. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. [source: WCAG Introduction]
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. § 794d) requires federal agencies to develop, procure, maintain or use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) that is accessible to people with disabilities – regardless of whether or not they work for the federal government. More information can be found on their website Section508.gov or by speaking with your legal counsel.
We use a variety of tools to audit our and our clients sites, holding ourselves and our clients to high standards, and include a widget from Userway.org to provide the best and fullest experience we can to everyone. LC3 Creative aims to be partially to fully conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content may not fully conform to the accessibility standard due to technology limitations or other factors.
A brilliant article that we share with our clients can be found on WebFX with a table that lays out all of the regulations and how they apply to public vs private vs federal organizations. We (members of LC3 Creative) are not legal counsel, and you should always consult your personal or corporate law representative to decide what works for you. Always use any information we give you as a starting point to learn, and then start a conversation with your own web developer AND legal counsel to plan a path for a better web.

While our focus is on our site and our client's, we cannot control what happens on the third party services that they may use to conduct business. For example, one client uses an external service to handle recurring donations - we have no access to that platform and merely embed or link to it so that it is utilized properly.
Accessibility of the LC3 Creative website and our client's sites relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:
