So we recommend you email them via their official portal requesting for data management or cancellation.
Alternatively, visit their nearest office if any. You can also post a hand written mail to their office requesting for account (data) management or data deletion.
Where you are submitting a verifiable request for them to delete any personal information they have collected about you, it will be at their discretion to honor such request.
Similarly, they may also turn down your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for them or their service provider(s). So it is not mandatory for them to honor your request..
Another grand they may also turn-down your deletion request if they are permitted by law to delete you data (account) from their database; is if they are unable to verify your identity.
