Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to the service and was prepared on December 05, 2022.

We have evaluated the accessibility of the service ourselves.

The design, implementation and content of the website have taken into account the critical accessibility requirements set by the Digital Services Act, i.e. WCAG 2.1 A and AA level criteria. Accessibility will also be taken into account in the future when developing the site and updating the content.

Digital service accessibility status

The website partially meets the accessibility requirements. Failure to comply with the requirements and applicable exceptions to the requirements are mentioned below.

Non-accessible content that is not accessible based on an unreasonable burden

There are pdf files on the site that are not accessible. It is difficult or impossible to edit documents made by outsiders (e.g. publications and seminar presentations) to be accessible. The exception referred to in Article 5 of EU Directive 2016/2102 is temporarily applied to these due to unreasonable burden.

Non-accessible content that is not covered by legislation

  • Office program files (e.g. doc, pdf, odt) that were published before 23 September 2018.
  • Video or audio recordings that were published before 23 September 2020.

Our website does not meet WCAG 2.1 level AAA criteria. These include, for example, sign language interpreting and extended descriptive interpreting. In addition, the recordings of our website and Youtube videos, which were published before the entry into force of the Digital Services Act, are not subtitled. The law does not require retroactive subtitling of videos. We subtitle all video and audio recordings that appear after the entry into force of the Digital Services Act.

Our goal is the highest possible level of accessibility. We require our employees to consider accessibility in all content production.
