Accessibility Statement

We’re committed to easy access for everyone.  

Vida Shoes International which operates lovepastry.com is committed to making our website as accessible as possible to people with special needs, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments.  We're constantly working towards improving the accessibility of our website to ensure we provide equal access to all of our users. 

As part of our commitment to accessibility, we ensure that our website is compatible with:

  • Recent versions of popular screen readers
  • Operating system screen magnifiers
  • Speech recognition software
  • Operating system speech packages

We always make sure that our website follows accessibility best practices by following the principles of universal design. This ensures the site is flexible and adaptable to different users’ needs or preferences and is accessible through a variety of different technologies, including mobile devices or assistive technologies.

During the development phase we endeavor to follow WebAIM’s Principles of Accessible Design, and also try to help improve the accessibility of our website for users with disabilities by:

  • Retaining the ability to adjust the font size
  • Maintaining color/contrast ratios for text
  • Providing keyboard accessible navigation
  • Providing skip to content links at the top of the page
  • We also monitor the accessibility of lovepastry.com using a 3rd party vendor

We periodically review, audit, and update the website for compliance with applicable standards.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0

Wherever possible, the website.com site will adhere to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0). These guidelines outline four main principles that state that sites should be:

Perceivable - Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive

 Operable - User interface components and navigation must be operable

 Understandable - Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable

 Robust - Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies

 Optimizing your set-up for your needs

 We recommend the AbilityNet website to provide guidance to make your computer more accessible. It offers help with seeing the screen, using your keyboard and mouse, hearing sounds, and with reading and spelling. The BBC My web, website also provides accessibility help, enabling computer users to make the most of the internet whatever their ability or disability.

 Links to 3rd party sites

 Our website may link to 3rd party sites that are out of our control.  Wherever possible we will indicate an outbound link that may not have the same level of accessibility.
