How long does data stay valid?

Hi y'all
If I buy a payg sim with 10gb and use 1gb, how long will the other 9gb remain valid and useable? 1, 3, 6, 12 months? Thanks

It depends on the tarif. 
some are 30 days whilst others last 12 months. 
which one exactly are you looking at?

These are all valid for 1 month https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/sim-cards/sim-only-deals#deviceType=tablet&contractLength=P30D

Hey thanks MI5. Well if you could point me in the direction of one that lasts 12months I'd go for that.
Have never bought payg so don't know what terminology to look for...aNd I'm thinking "would a company really let me get away with a one off payment and still have data available months later"?
