I don't like having accounts all over the internet there and here. Duolingo is good but must provide the option to delete accounts. Besides Tiny Cards really suck.

As long as they do not retain personal data Duo can keep all your data as long as they have a use for it. I presume Duolingo, being based in the USA, adhere to the basic 8 principles of Data Protection.

You can't because tinycards account connect to duolingo account.... I think.

Or maybe leave it. It's normal!

Just leave it, there should be no personal information that is at risk.

My name and email address are my personal data and according to the international standards if not consented by me, they cannot keep or retain them. Although I don't know US laws, I think they should have to abide by the international standards.

There are no International standards as such although most countries adhere to the 8 basic principles. You should be able to delete or change your email although your name by itself is probably not sufficiently capable of uniqually identifying your person.
