WHAT WE COLLECT
The phrases “personally identifiable information” or “personal information” mean any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc. Each time a user visits Archipelago Lifestyle, certain information is collected. That information is specific to your visit and whether you browse, shop or register. Depending on those actions, different unique information is gathered. You can visit most of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.
If we do collect such personally identifiable information, we typically use it for the purpose of improving your shopping experience and other like-minded shoppers. The information below details the types of information we collect, how it is gathered and what is done with it.
