Our Web Accessibility Statement
We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen- readers used by blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you wish to contact the website's owner please use the following email email@example.com
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
1. Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others.
Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Additionally, keyboard users will find quick-navigation and content-skip menus, available at any time by clicking Alt+1, or as the first element of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, and not allow the focus to drift outside of it.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
DIsability profiles supported on our website
Epilepsy Safe Profile: this profile enables people with epilepsy to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of seizures that result from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations.
Visually Impaired Profile: this profile adjusts the website so that it is accessible to the majority of visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
Cognitive Disability Profile: this profile provides various assistive features to help users with cognitive disabilities such as Autism, Dyslexia, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements more easily.
ADHD Friendly Profile: this profile significantly reduces distractions and noise, to help people with ADHD and Neurodevelopmental disorders browse, read, and focus on the essential elements more easily.
Blind Users Profile (Screen-readers): this profile adjusts the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen-reader is installed on the blind user’s computer, and this site is compatible with it.
Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor-Impaired): this profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Additional UI, design, and readability adjustments
1. Font adjustments – users, can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
2. Color adjustments – users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can
swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds, with over 7
different coloring options.
3. Animations – epileptic users can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos, GIFs, and CSS flashing transitions.
4. Content highlighting – users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements only.
5. Audio muting – users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
6. Cognitive disorders – we utilize a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
7. Additional functions – we provide users the option to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.
Assistive technology and browser compatibility.
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS, and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Notes, comments, and feedback
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating, and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. If you wish to contact the website's owner please use the following email firstname.lastname@example.org
Your Children to Use the Sanrio.com Site
To make the Site safe and fun for children, we have adopted the following policies and practices.
1. What Information is Collected from Children?
Children can explore the Site, view and print content, and play many games without providing to us any "Personally Identifiable Information" (i.e., Information that can be used to identify or contact the child. Personally Identifiable Information includes information such as full name, home address, telephone number and e-mail address). We do not condition children's participation in online activities on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary for a child to engage in any particular activity. If children do not create an account, subscribe to e-mail newsletters, send e-cards or e-mail to friends, or participate in polls and surveys that request Personally Identifiable Information on or through the Site, the only information we collect will be "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" (i.e., Information that cannot be used to identify or contact the child). If, however, children choose to create an account, subscribe to e-mail newsletters, send e-cards or e-mail to friends, or participate in online polls that request Personally Identifiable Information, we may require them to submit Personally Identifiable Information as described below. Before they are permitted to do so, we will obtain verifiable parental consent, such as through a form that must be printed, signed by the child's parent, and returned to us.
(a) Subscribing to Newsletters. When children subscribe to our "Hello Kitty's Sweet Happy News" e-mail newsletter or other newsletters, we may ask for their first and last name, e-mail address, country of residence, age, gender, favorite Sanrio character, and/or products of interest. We use this information to appropriately target the newsletter to the child.
(b) Sending E-Cards and E-Mailing Art to a Friend. Children can send an electronic postcard ("e-card") or e-mail art to a friend using our Post Office. We may ask for a first name and e-mail address, and we may also ask for Personally Identifiable Information about the intended recipient, like a first name and e-mail address.
(c) Participating in Online Polls. Sanrio may, from time to time, utilize online polls. If the poll requests or permits a child to provide Personally Identifiable Information, we will first obtain verifiable parental consent. Some polls may request only information that is not personally identifiable (such as first name only, city or state of residence, age, gender, or favorite Sanrio character), in which case, we will not obtain verifiable parental consent.
When children known by us to be under thirteen participate in a Site activity that requires or permits the collection of Personally Identifiable Information, we may also ask for information such as a parent's name and e-mail address in order to obtain verifiable parental consent.
2. How Information Collected from Children is Used and Shared
We use Personally Identifiable Information collected in connection with child-directed activities for internal purposes only, such as to distribute an online newsletter, to enable children to send e-cards or e-mail to friends, or to allow children to participate in online polls or surveys.
(a) Subscribing to Newsletters. Sanrio uses contact information collected during subscription to send children the newsletter, which includes marketing content. A child may opt out of receiving the newsletter by following the unsubscribe instructions contained within it.
(b) Sending E-Cards and E-Mailing Art to a Friend. When children provide information to send an e-card or e-mail art to a friend, Sanrio will only use the information given to send the e-card or e-mail and will not retain the information after the e-card or e-mail is sent.
(c) Participating in Online Polls. Sanrio may share aggregate information about our users with our advertising partners, such as that gathered from online polls. We need to do this so that our advertising partners can target their advertisements at the right audiences. Please note, however, that we do not give any Personally Identifiable Information collected from children to any of our advertising partners.
(d) Communications with Sanrio. When children send an e-mail message to or otherwise contact Sanrio, we use the information solely to respond, and then we delete it.
We do not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information collected from children to any third parties except (a) with a parent's written permission, (b) as required by any applicable law, (c) to our operations and maintenance contractors, under the terms set forth below; or (d) as permitted by COPPA, such as in the event of a physical threat to a child. Sanrio operations and maintenance contractors sometimes have limited access to Personally Identifiable Information in the course of providing products or services to Sanrio. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content related to better operation and maintenance of the Site. Access to Personally Identifiable Information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the contractor to perform its limited function for Sanrio. We also contractually require that our operations and maintenance contractors not use or disclose this Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than providing us with products and services, and that they secure this Personally Identifiable Information with safeguards equivalent to our own safeguards.
3. Linked Sites
4. We Notify and Obtain Consent from Parents for the Collection of Personally Identifiable Information From Their Children
We are required by COPPA to use reasonable efforts to ensure that before Personally Identifiable Information is collected from a child, a parent of the child receives notice of and consents to our information practices. Subject to certain limited exceptions permitted by COPPA, children under the age of 13 may participate in Site activities that require us to collect Personally Identifiable Information from them only with the verifiable consent of a parent or legal guardian. We may obtain verifiable parental consent in various ways, such as through a form that must be printed, signed by the child's parent, and returned to us.
5. How Parents can Access and/or Delete Personally Identifiable Information About Their Children
Parents have the right to access and/or delete any Personally Identifiable Information collected by us online from their children, and to refuse at any time to permit us to collect further such information from their children. A parent may exercise these rights by e-mailing email@example.com. Please include the child's member name and the parent's e-mail address in the e-mail.
For children subscribing to the "Hello Kitty's Sweet Happy News" e-mail newsletter, a link to our communications preference center is included at the end of each newsletter. If you would like to unsubscribe your child from the newsletter or change any information, please follow the link at the end of the newsletter, or send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the e-mail address you want removed or changed.
