This cookie policy (“Cookie Policy”) provides detailed information about how and when 1440 uses Cookies and similar technologies when you visit our website at (the “Site”) and use our products and/or services, interact with online advertisements or marketing emails, or engage with any other websites, pages, features, or content we own or operate that direct you to this Cookie Policy (collectively the “Services”). This Cookie Policy explains what these technologies are, why we use them, and your rights to control our use of them. Please read this Cookie Policy carefully so that you can be informed about our Cookie handling practices when accessing or using the Services.

3. What are Cookies?

“Cookies” are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites function, to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. 

We may use first-party Cookies and we use third-party Cookies on our Services. First-party Cookies are Cookies that are placed on your device by us, while third-party Cookies are set by parties other than 1440. Third-Party Cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Services (for example advertising, interactive content, interaction with social media sites, and analytics). The parties that set these third party Cookies can recognize your computer or mobile device both when you visit the Services, and also when you visit certain other websites. 1440 does not control how third-party Cookies are used, and we encourage you to check the websites of any third-party Cookie providers for more information about how they use Cookie information.

4. How long will Cookies stay on my browsing device?

Our retention periods for Cookie information depend on whether the Cookie is a “persistent” or “session” Cookie. Each category of Cookie listed below is either a session Cookie or persistent Cookie.

We use “persistent Cookies” to save information about you for longer periods of time, while “session” Cookies are deleted when you close your browser or after a short period of time. Persistent Cookies are stored for varied lengths of time depending on the purpose of the Cookie collection and tool used. You can delete Cookie data as described herein.

5. Why does 1440 use Cookies?

1440 may use first-party Cookies and does use third-party Cookies. First-party Cookies and third-party Cookies are used for several reasons. 1440 uses third party Cookies to help it understand how the Services are being used, such as whether you spent more time on a certain part of the Services, whether you experienced any technical issues, and more.  Some Cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” Cookies. Other third party Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users and to enhance the experience of the Service. Third parties serve Cookies through the Services for advertising, analytics and other purposes.

6. What types of Cookies does 1440 use?

As of the date of this Privacy Notice, we only use third party Cookies. Since circumstances may change, we may use first-party Cookies or other third party Cookies in the future. The types of Cookies we may use on the Services are described below:

7. Strictly Necessary Cookies

These Cookies are strictly necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually set only in response to actions made by you which amount to requests to provide the Services. Strictly necessary Cookies allow you to use the Services and to enable access to various features such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms, creating a unique user session, and enabling access to secure areas. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these Cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These Cookies do not store any personally identifiable information and 1440 serves these Cookies directly.

8. Performance Cookies

These Cookies are used to enhance and improve the performance of the Services but are not essential. These Cookies collect information that helps us understand how the Services are being used by our customers and how effective our marketing campaigns are. These Cookies may collect ‘IP’ addresses and may generate unique identifiers to analyze how frequently you visit the Services, and gather other metrics such as page views. All information these Cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these Cookies we will not know when you have visited the Services, and will not be able to monitor the performance of the Services.

9. Functionality Cookies

These Cookies enable the Services to provide enhanced functionality and personalized features. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. Although these Cookies are not strictly necessary, if you disable them, certain functionality may not be available to you.

10. Targeting Cookies

Targeting Cookies are used by our advertising and marketing partners and work primarily through uniquely identifying your device (e.g., advertising ID, ‘IP’ address, geolocation), and are used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant ads on other websites you may visit. If you do not allow these Cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

11. Use of Local Storage

Cookies are not the only way to store information on your computer or mobile device. 1440 stores additional information that is essential to the functionality of the Services in local storage. Local storage is similar to the storage of information in Cookies, but never expires until the Services delete this information, or you delete it yourself. Please refer to the instructions specific to the type of browser you are using, or the specific mobile phone operating system you are using for instructions on how to delete local storage.

12. Other Tracking Technologies

Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a website. 1440 and our third party partners may use other similar technologies such as clear GIFs (also known as “tracking pixels” and “web beacons”). Clear GIFs are small graphics files that contain an identifier that recognizes when a user visits the Site. This allows our third-party partners to monitor traffic patterns between websites, communicate with Cookies, to understand if you have come from an advertisement displayed on a third party website, to monitor the success of marketing campaigns and to improve site performance. These technologies typically rely on Cookies to function, so disabling Cookies in your browser will impair their functionality.

13. How can you manage Cookies via your browser settings?

You have the right to decide whether to allow Cookies when using the Services. Most browsers allow you to control Cookies as part of their settings and preferences. Please refer to your specific browser for instructions on how to disable, limit and delete Cookies. 

Note that if you disable, limit or delete Cookies, the Services may not function properly, and this may prevent you from using our Services.

14. Third-Party Cookies

Any Cookies that are placed on your browsing device by a third party can be managed through your browser (as described above) or by checking the third party’s website for more information about Cookie management and how to “opt-out” of receiving Cookies from them.

15. How can I opt-out of interest-based advertising Cookies?

We do not control interest-based advertising Cookies on the Services. However, many advertising companies that collect information for interest-based advertising are members of the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) or the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), both of which maintain websites where people can opt out of interest-based advertising from their members.

To opt-out of website interest-based advertising provided by each organization’s respective participating companies, visit the DAA’s opt-out portal available at, the DAA of Canada’s opt-out portal available at, or visit the NAI’s opt-out portal available at

Residents of the European Union may opt-out of online behavioral advertising served by the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance’s participating member organizations by visiting

16. How can I opt-out of analytics and marketing Cookies?

As described in this Cookie Policy, we use third-party analytics providers to collect information about the effectiveness of our Services and marketing campaigns. Some third-party analytics and marketing Cookie service providers allow you to opt-out with them directly.
