and this is the real problem: you lose the exclusive access to your data
you have to believe they are secure, you have to believe they are backuped
and if the hopefully existing backups are needed from your service
provider you have to pray that their disaster-recovery plan is working
in the real life and not only on the paper

if i have important and sensitve data they are not for the cloud
if i have non-important data i delete them regulary instead waste space

no, i do not own a credit card at own because it is a U.S: syndrome
to think someone can not live without and i know some online-clearing
solutions for payment with them - some are HORRIBLE and that is why
we are very careful which we implement for our customers
