Protecting your business online is more important than you realize…

ADA Compliant Websites

Open up your website to everyone… because it’s the right thing to do.

Accelerated Web Systems uses an Intelligent Accessibility Compliance System that transforms older websites into fully-compliant ADA websites. We implement the highest industry standards and practices with our Artificial Intelligence-based Remediation System. We assess your website and provide a complete solution. The result is the lowest up-front cost and the most permanent accessibility remediation possible. But how do you know if your site is ADA-compliant? The answer is to schedule a consultation and hire us to get the job done.

Does the ADA Apply to Small Businesses?

It might come as a surprise, but yes, even small businesses are required to comply with the ADA. According to ADA Title III, every business, no matter how big or small, has to be accessible for people with disabilities.

Disability rights activists, legal scholars, and court rulings have agreed that online websites are covered by ADA Title III. Furthermore, in 2018 the Department of Justice specifically stated that websites are considered places of public accommodations, despite the ADA not mentioning websites specifically.

Therefore, ADA Title III applies both to physical access, like permitting service animals to enter the premises, and digital access, like including subtitles on videos and ensuring websites support accessibility technology.

3 Reasons Why Your Website Should be ADA-Compliant

  1. Protect Your Business from Lawsuits
  2. Web Accessibility Helps Grow Traffic and Sales
  3. Web Accessibility is the Right Thing To Do

We offer a straightforward, business-friendly, and cost-effective way to get a fully accessible website. Our system scans your site to identify accessibility issues, and then it automatically remediates them.

GDPR — General Data Protection Regulation

What is it and does it apply to small business.

To put it simply, the GDPR does 3 things:

  1. It gives citizens and residents of the European Union the right to control their personal data
  2. It simplifies the regulatory environment by unifying regulations within the EU, and
  3. Provides a level playing field for all businesses in the EU

It applies to any organization that processes or stores personal information of EU member citizens, from a 1-person business to a multi-national corporation, anywhere in the world. This includes physical and digital files. So yes, it applies to you, unless you are a 100% cash-only business (past, present, future). You can be fined and sanctioned if you don’t comply.

Copyright Infringement

How Using Copyrighted Photos and Images on Your Website Could Cost You Thousands of Dollars in Legal Fees

If you are marketing online with a website, Facebook page, emails, or countless other advertising platforms, you naturally want to use quality photos and images to highlight your products and services to attract more customers.

Unfortunately, it’s too easy to grab a photo or image off the Internet and use it for free. Most people do not know they are doing anything wrong. This is dangerous ground, as many business owners have learned the hard way. It is a crime known as “copyright infringement,” which makes it illegal to use other people’s copyrighted images without first getting the appropriate permissions.

Copyright Law & Copyright Infringement

Photographs, illustrations, and other images are known as “intellectual property,” which legally belong to the artists who created them or the companies that produced them. From music, art, and film to writing and photography, a wide range of original works is protected by copyright laws that help prevent others from unlawful use.

“Fine Print” Information Pages

Terms and Conditions, Disclaimers, Privacy Policies, and others are important pages on your website and will be determined based on the nature of your business.
