According to a Nintendo spokesperson speaking to IGN, save data cloud backup, also known as cloud saves, are maintained for up to 6 months (180 days) after a Nintendo Switch Online subscription expires. This means you have up to 6 months to resubscribe to the service in order to recover your cloud saves.
This is definitely more reasonable than instantly erasing cloud saves after a user’s Switch Online subscription ends.
