As long as you adhere to the T&C's etc. in theory yes. 

 

BUT as with anything I'd say always always have additional backups and copies - do not just rely upon one service.

Your account will stay valid and open as long as it is in use. However if you do not log in inactive accounts are removed after 12 months.
