Have a nose through the Data Protection Act. The fifth principle states that information should not be kept any longer than necessary, so you may be able to get them to remove your details (and by extension your account) if you're not using it and they have no need to process it.

In any case, you should have right of access to any data they keep about you.

From a technical standpoint there should be no reason why they can't delete a profile, or at least fill in the fields on their database with null values.

Sadly we live in a world where data is being collected for the sake of it (at least I hope that's the only reason!). We need to get spiky about our personal data and start kicking up if we don't like something that's going on.
