What Happens to Vault When Norton Expires?

I don't need a "Solution" as Nort implies. Just an answer.

  1. If I set up Norton Vault, and in time, Norton expires, and I don't renew, do I loose all my stored Id's and Password and anything else like Addresses store in the "Vault"?
     
  2. What prevents people from stealing our Vault information?
     
  3. I read some of the hundreds of legal documents that exclude Norton/Symantec from any responsibility arising from anything happening to anyone's information on the Norton/Symantec servers. But what happens if a Norton Vault Cloud is struck by lightning? Are we, the consumer protected?

Trolls - find someone else. Real responses are very much, greatly appreciated.

Re: What Happens to Vault When Norton Expires?

  1. If your Norton product expires, it stops working. You will not be able to access the vault from Norton Toolbars. I'm not sure about the extensions for Edge and Firefox. The information will still be in the cloud, so you will be able to access it from   https://identitysafe.norton.com.
  2. Information stored in your cloud vault is encrypted before it leaves your computer. The encryption key is kept on your computer, so even Norton has no way to decrypt it. So even if the server were hacked, it would all be gibberish. 
  3. AFAIK there are redundant servers located throughout the world. So if your scenario happened to one data center, there would be backup systems to supply to information.

AFAIK this information is correct. As always, I stand to be corrected.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Thank you peterweb for your input.

YOIKS! It sounds to me like hooking up with the Vault is a very long-term relationship that when leaving,  castration AND a divorce would be much easier and less painful. A tool to avoid. Thanks.
