The lawyers, paralegals and staff at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP (reffered to as “we” on this page) work diligently to ensure that your privacy is protected. The following Privacy Policy explains how we handle your personal information and the steps we take to protect your privacy.

You are not required to provide us with any personal information in order for you to use the Severance Pay Calculator function on this website. You may anonymously use the calculator to obtain information about severance pay. The following type of information may be collected from you via this website:

Cookies & Links

We use cookies and unique links to follow visitor experience on this website, and to keep track of what links have been accessed and how a visitor moves around the website. We use this information in an effort to improve the user experience on the website.

Information provided by you

When you complete the Severance Pay Calculator on this website, you have the option of filling out a contact form. This form also exists on our “contact us” page. The data added to that form (name, email, telephone number, your specific severance pay calculations) will be collected.

If you subscribe to our newsletter via a link on this website, the personal data you enter on the Mailchimp newsletter landing page will be collected. Data included will be your name, email address, and location (used to determine which type of location content you would like to receive).

How We Use Your Information

Samfiru Tumarkin LLP uses your personal information only for the reasons for which it was collected. We periodically review our data collection and usage practices in order to guarantee that the data we collect is used to provide or improve our services.

When you provide your personal information through a contact form on this website, we will only use that data to respond to your request to be contacted by our firm, and to provide our staff with a better understanding of your current situation.

Personal information provided when signing up for a newsletter is used to send you updates, newsletters or alerts.

Data collected when you access this website (pages you visit, how long you spend on a page, links you click on, browsers used, how you arrived on the website, etc.) is used to improve the website. We also use the data for marketing purposes to determine how to better provide you with the information you seek.

Options for Personal Information

If we propose to use your personal information for any purpose other than what is laid out in the Privacy Policy or other statements on this website or correspondence from this website, we will provide a way for you to opt out of that use. We do not collect personal information for use beyond the terms laid out in this privacy policy.

You have the ability to opt out of our newsletters after you have signed up. You also have the right to use the Severance Pay Calculator without providing us with your personal contact information (name, phone number, email address). You are also not required to fill out a contact form on this website. Any of these steps will eliminate our ability to contact you or provide you with our services.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will delete or anonymize. If that is not possible, it will be securely stored and isolated until deletion is possible.
