Accessibility of statutory insurance services for private customers

This document describes the accessibility of statutory insurance services for private customers at the website.

The website is provided by Pohjola Insurance Ltd. Its accessibility has been assessed by accessibility experts working for Pohjola Insurance on a project basis and by means of self-assessments of web accessibility.

The following systems have been used in the self-assessments:

  • Accessibility on desktop computers has been tested using the Chrome web browser and NVDA screen reader software.
  • Accessibility on mobile devices has been tested using Apple devices, the Safari web browser (touch gestures) and the VoiceOver screen reader app.

The provisions on accessibility are included in the Act on the Provision of Digital Services. 

This accessibility statement was created on 22.9.2020 and was last updated on 22.9.2020.

Accessibility status

This website partly fulfils the requirements. We will try to correct all listed issues in the statutory insurance services during spring 2021. 

Please see below for a list of non-conformities and exceptions applicable to the requirements.

Non-accessible content 

One accessibility issue in the service to purchase statutory motor liability insurance is that the colour contrast of reports does not fully meet accessibility requirements. In addition, the services do not yet fully support the use of assistive technology such as screen readers, and there are problems in keyboard navigation. Other common issues in loss reports include insufficient availability of text alternatives for graphic elements.

Attachment files in the service, such as insurance terms and conditions (PDF), product descriptions (PDF), forms, certificates of insurance (PDF) and other files will be redesigned to meet accessibility requirements. Due to the large number of documents and forms, some documents may fail to meet accessibility requirements as described below. We will try to correct these issues in spring 2021.

The site does not yet meet the following accessibility requirements specified in the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).
