    Personal Data breach on websites

    Personal Data breach on websites 5th Jan 18 at 11:30 PM
    Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I have a problem with a website that is refusing to delete my account and/or remove my personal details from their system. They had a data breach about 2 years ago and I only found out about it 2 months ago and wish to delete my account as 1). I no longer use the site and 2). don't feel like my data is safe there. I already spoke to their customer support team and they say no one can delete my account as it is 'not possible'. I've checked over their T&C's and no where does it say that an account is not removable. Please help!

    Top secret website is it?

    What data do they have that you do not want them to keep?

    T&C's does not state you cannot delete your account, does it say you can though?
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    Due to me being a tight git.
