Accessibility

The concept
Our goal is to feature the content on Deutsche Bank's Web pages in such a way that each visitor can easily access the information he or she is looking for.

The design of our Web pages complies with the guidelines of the W3C consortium [World Wide Web Consortium]. The Consortium aims to create standards for the design of Web pages based on standardized guidelines [WCAG - Web Content Accessibility Guidelines].
Our aim is not to slavishly implement these guidelines, but rather to customize the content according to users' needs. Online development will be regularly monitored and optimized towards this goal.

We build our websites according to set rules and standards that guarantee the highest possible level of user-friendliness. We continuously check our standards and adapt them to changing demands, based on the feedback we receive from the visitors.

What is accessibility?
Accessible Internet involves online services that can be used without limitations by everyone regardless of physical and/or technical abilities. These include people with or without physical disabilities, as well as those with technical or age-related limitations. Web crawlers used by search engines to copy the content of Web pages are also given the best possible support.

Structure of the Deutsche Bank corporate website
The Deutsche Bank corporate website consists of five sections:

The "Our Company" section provides an overview on key information concerning Deutsche Bank Group. It describes the organization, the Brand identity, as well as Deutsche Bank's guidelines for corporate governance.

In the "Investor Relations" section offers investors detailed information on IR-related news and events as well as on Deutsche Bank stock performance.

The "Press" section is geared towards journalists. It contains press releases, contact data, and useful background information for members of the press.

The "Social Responsibility" section provides an overview on Deutsche Bank's social, cultural and environmental commitments for each stakeholder group.

For those who would like to join Deutsche Bank as a staff member, the "Careers" section offers relevant background on HR-related issues.
