A large perceivable region that contains information about the parent document.
Examples of information included in this region of the page are copyrights and links to privacy statements.
User agents SHOULD treat elements with the role of contentinfo as navigational landmarks.
Within any document or application, the author SHOULD mark no more than one element with the contentinfo role.
Note: Because document and application elements can be nested in the DOM, they may have multiple contentinfo elements as DOM descendants, assuming each of those is associated with different document nodes, either by a DOM nesting (e.g., document within document) or by use of the aria-owns attribute.
