RhythmOne Review

This company and its subentity, RhythmOne, aren’t complying with Consumers’ ability to opt out of Online Behavioral Ads. I went to the regulatory agencies’ websites, networkadvertising.org, and aboutads.info, and successfully “opted out” of 125 of the 126 companies that had enabled Online Behavioral Ads on my browser. The 126th company, listed as RhythmOne (formerly Burst Media) claimed it was “currently unavailable” and thus I was unable to opt out of the aforementioned Online Behavioral Ads I had previously been oblivious to. | I did some research, which included visiting the websites for RhythymOne, and discovered that I was unable to opt out of Online Behavioral Ads there, either. upon reading the privacy policy, I discovered that although I may have clicked their link to opt out, by simply visiting their website and

This is entirely deceptive, and a violation of the industry standards RhythmOne and their parent company, blinkx, allegedly adhere to. | I did further research and discovered that blinkx has an extremely bad reputation, and others beside myself have been unable to opt out of these Online Behavioral Ads. | RhythmOne and its parent entity, blinkx, need to allow myself and other consumers to opt out of Online Behavioral Ads. If they don’t, they need to stop advertising themselves as being compliant with their “self-regulating” Industry Standards. | They know exactly what they’re doing, and are trying to maximize their profits by deceiving consumers.
