Security of Personal Information

Juniper Networks safeguards the security of the personal information and other data provided to us with appropriate physical, administrative and technical procedures.

If we learn of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on our Websites or by sending an email to you. You may have a legal right to receive this notice in writing or in any other form required by applicable law.

Use of Cookies and Similar Technologies

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer so that our Website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

Similar technologies are tools that can be used instead of or in conjunction with cookies, such as web beacons which are small non-recognizable pictures downloaded to your computer when a specific site is loaded.

When you visit our Websites, we may use cookies and similar technologies for the following purposes:

  • To help us recognize you as a unique visitor (just a number) when you return to our Website,
  • To allow us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests,
  • To avoid showing you the same advertisements repeatedly,
  • To develop leads for our internal sales group and our business partners and provide direct marketing communications to you if you have consented to receive such communications,
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users interact with our site,
  • To help us improve the structure of our Website (we cannot identify you personally in this way), and
  • To protect the security of our Website.

Two types of cookies may be used on our Websites: session cookies (which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site) and persistent cookies (which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer, though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).

Disabling and Enabling Cookies

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser, as well as delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our Website if cookies are disabled/deleted.

Your California Privacy Rights

Residents of the State of California, under California Civil Code § 1798.83, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an opt-out or opt-in choice for use of your personal information by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

Juniper Networks qualifies for the alternative option. We have a comprehensive privacy statement, and provide you with details on how you may either opt-out or opt-in to the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices, please email us your request to
