Legal aspects and privacy
Does accessWidget collect user information?

AccessiWay is GDPR compliant because no personal or sensitive end-user data is processed or stored. The only personal data that is transmitted to our servers is the IP address.

The software works client-side in a local session, so the other data we process (purely technical: css attributes and html elements) are saved in 'Local Storage' and not on AccessiWay's servers.

Does accessScan collect data from my website?

accesScan does not collect data from your website and complies with the GDPR and CCPA data privacy regulations

How can I become compliant?

Web accessibility is a process, so to strive for the highest level of compliance and accessibility you need to rely on expert consultants.

As such, we always recommend combining the automated services of accessWidget software with our consultancy services that will help you understand the legal requirements and execute them according to best practices (those defined by AgID), so that you can work together to achieve the highest possible level of compliance for your website.

Can I settle my case with the accessScan report?

acceScan has no legal authority, it provides a score on the compliance status of your website's page templates, which can help you and your team decide on a course of action.

Does accessWidget comply with the GDPR?

AccessiWay is GDPR compliant because no personal or sensitive end-user data is processed or stored. The only personal data that is transmitted to our servers is the IP address, but this is not transmitted unencrypted as the transmission is end-to-end encrypted.
The software works client-side in a local session, so the other data we handle (purely technical: css attributes and html elements) are saved in 'Local Storage' and not on AccessiWay's servers.
In addition, the company responsible for processing the data is Israeli and the owners of the servers, even if they are US-based, have no access to the data (precisely because of the end-to-end encryption).
Israel is on the GDPR White List.

What is WCAG 2.1 AA and why is it important for a website?

WCAG 2.1 is a 1,000-page guide explaining how accessible websites should look and function for people with disabilities, a group that comprises about 20 per cent of the world's population.

The WCAG covers the needs of a wide range of disabilities, in particular blind people and their use of screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA and Voiceover, people with motor disabilities and their needs for keyboard navigation, people suffering from epilepsy, colour blindness, cognitive and learning disabilities and other visual impairments.

The first WCAG were published in 1999, revised in 2008 as WCAG 2.0 and updated again in 2018 in the form we use today, the 2.1
