When we talk of data retention, we are actually speaking of several different things. There is how long your data is available after you have ended your subscription. There is data retention in the context of blob storage. We can set data retention policies for databases. Long term data retention determines how long your database backups are held for. Finally, there is the retention of analytics and metrics data.
With the exception of free trials, if your cloud subscription is terminated or expires, Microsoft will store your data in a limited function account for 90 days. This will give you time to extract your data or renew your subscription. After the 90-day retention period, your data will be deleted, including all cached or backup copies.
