Product Accessibility Status

At Splunk, we leverage the internationally recognized accessibility regulations, standards, and best practices, specified in the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level A and AA, to the extent possible, Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act, and EU’s EN 301 549 Accessibility Requirements. Through internally trained staff and support from third-party testing services, we are committed to providing products designed to be accessible by those who require assistive technologies.

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a standardized document that outlines how information technology products conform with accessibility standards. The VPAT is used to develop Accessibility Conformance Reports (ACRs) that detail the accessibility of Splunk product features. The documents listed in this section are VPATs / ACRs that reflect Splunk product conformance to applicable accessibility requirements.

Any VPAT posted in this section, or anywhere else on Splunk’s website, or otherwise publicly available, shall not be construed to be included in any contract, either explicitly or implicitly, in whole or in part, absent Splunk’s express acknowledgment through language in the contract itself that such report or its substantive equivalent is included.
