  • We introduced two helper client-side methods: RW.optIn() and RW.optOut(). You can leverage those with your cookies consent opt-in/out logic.
  • We are no longer storing IPs. Instead, we store anonymized IPs – a non-personal data. Therefore, we are no longer storing any personal data of EU visitors unless they opt-in.
  • Device ID cookies are no longer created for EU visitors unless you manually integrate a cookies consent on your site and they opt-in via the RW.optIn() method.
  • The identification method for an opted-out visitor is based on their anonymized IP by default.
  • You’ll need to add a section to your cookies policy (or privacy policy), mentioning that you’re using the RatingWidget service and add an opt-out button which will call RW.optOut() to opt-out any visitor from cookies. You can use the following paragraph:
    > We use RatingWidget as a feedback mechanism for our visitors, providing them with an easy way to cast their opinion. The service is using cookies to avoid duplicate votes from the same device. Here’s a link to RatingWidget’s privacy policy. You can opt-out from their voter tracking cookies by clicking the Opt out button on their privacy page.

Looking for reviews?

Every review starts with a simple star rating and we all know it! We are excited to announce that we launched our Reviews Add-on (pro add-on). With our awesome Reviews Add-on, you can now set up custom rules when to open a modal review box and capture a textual review from your voters. Like all our products, the Reviews Add-on works out of the box and requires zero configuration.

The Rating-Widget Star Ratings WordPress plugin allows you to create and manage ratings from within your WordPress dashboard. You can embed thumb & star ratings into your posts, pages or comments. All Rating-Widget star ratings are fully customizable, cross-browser, support multi-language, CSS3 compliant. You can create unlimited thumb & star ratings and collect unlimited votes. The reviews editor allows you to fully customize your ratings and their placement on your blog’s layout. You can also avail of the ‘Top Rated’ widget that will allow you to place the widget in your sidebar. This widget will show you the top rated posts, pages and comments.
