RentHelper is committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected through the Service for third party purposes, and that is why RentHelper provides the opt-out links below. However, RentHelper does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
