Many online services provide “widgets” that one can place on a website to bring new functionality to site visitors. We recognize how attractive that is, and want you to be able to use every tool necessary to meet your organization’s goals.
But of course, we are also committed to keeping Soapbox secure for you.
To address these risks yet allow the use of as many widgets as possible, we have engaged a policy that offers two solutions:
Often, this works and the code will run as expected. However, sometimes the code won’t work on a server other than its home server. In which case, you may ask the vendor if they have a version of their code that will work on a remote server. Otherwise, the widget will not be allowed on your Soapbox site.
We do reserve the right to refuse to link to or host any third-party code at our discretion.
