No, the desktop applications in Creative Cloud, such as Photoshop and Illustrator, are installed directly on your computer, so you don't need an ongoing Internet connection to use them.

An Internet connection is required the first time you install and license your apps, but you can use the apps in offline mode with a valid software license. The desktop apps will attempt to validate your software licenses every 30 days.

For annual members, you can use the apps for up to 99 days in offline mode. Month-to-month members can use the software for up to 30 days in offline mode.

Your CC files are stored on your desktop as well as on the CC servers. If you cancel or downgrade your paid membership, you will still have access to all of the files in the Creative Cloud folder on your computer and via the Creative Cloud website.

Your account will be downgraded to a free membership, which includes 2GB of storage. If you're using more than 2GB of storage, you will not be able to sync files until the amount of online disk space used in your account drops below your allotted amount.

If you are over your quota, you have 90 days to reduce your online usage or you may lose access to some or all of your files through the Creative Cloud website, although you'll still have the files on your desktop.

No, you can continue using your current version of the product as long as you have an active membership. You have flexibility on when and if you install a new release.

The best way to purchase is directly through the Adobe website. You can also find Adobe Student and Teacher Editions through many campus bookstores and other online retailers.
