Third-Party Integration Limitations
There are certain third-party integrations which are essential to Ira & Carol Serkes’ operation of BerkeleyHomes.com
We have limited or no ability to edit these services, and have neither the resources nor the capacity to recreate the services.
These integrations include the IDX solutions service which allows the display of Multiple Listing Service (MLS) properties, and the NextGen services which allows galleries of property photos and images to be served to our web site.
We believe that subsections (iii) under Sec. 12182(b)(2)(A) of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provide for relief:
(iii) unless the entity can demonstrate that taking such steps would fundamentally alter the nature of the good, service, facility, privilege, advantage, or accommodation being offered or would result in an undue burden
We will pursue improvements in accessibility of third-party integrations as they become available and/or known to us.
