EMC Insurance Companies is committed to providing an online environment that is functional for everyone, per our Accessibility Policy. This website has been developed to ensure that the information provided is freely available to all interested parties.
EMC takes reasonable steps to develop our website, www.emcins.com, to comply with United States Department of Justice guidelines regarding website accessibility, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our goal is that this website conforms to Level AA of the Worldwide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0. Our website content is monitored regularly to ensure compliance and usability.
This policy statement is meant to provide an overview of some of the accessibility concepts we are including. Features we are implementing are meant to help improve accessibility in a variety of contexts, including, but not limited to, navigation for screen readers, keyboard navigation, text-only browsers and use of multimedia content.
Summary of Concepts
- Color — We have attempted to achieve good color contrast between copy and page backgrounds, and color is not relied on to convey information or navigational options (e.g. “click on red to”).
- Layout and Structure — We have used a clear layout and structural markup for elements including headings, paragraphs and lists. Our webpages can also be read when style sheets are turned off.
- Images — We have included descriptive alternative text for instances of images.
- Web Standards — This site is web standards compliant. We have used HyperText Markup Language (HTML) 5 and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Level 3 that conform to the specifications as laid out by the W3C.
Third-Party Hosted Content
Our website includes a small amount of content that is hosted by third parties, such as the EMC Insurance Group Inc. Investors section and links to www.emcnationallife.com, social media sites and others. Although this content is outside of our controlled codebase, we encourage our partners and vendors to comply with generally recognized guidelines for website accessibility.
