Hello, I am from the US. I found a link which referred me to a website that specializes in modding videogames. Without looking or reading up much on the site I signed up as I assumed I would be able to delete my account. I quickly found that I did not want to keep this account there. I emailed the administrator of the site for clarification on the policy, and they stated that they were legally obligated to retain my account for 7 years, and they then banned me from the site. I had emailed about the possibility of deletion, though I did not request it before they banned me. I did further research on this site and they stated vaguely that the GDPR requires them to maintain my account for 10 years, but they state 7 in the terms of service. They also referenced US Tax Laws and the Swiss Data Protection Act, but they referred to the GDPR as the law they had to follow regarding retention of my account. I did a few hours of searching but could not come up with anything that stated they had to retain this, which would prevent me from acting upon my right to delete the account. I was wondering if there was something I missed in my research regarding the retention period.
