Azure Rights Management (often abbreviated to Azure RMS) is the protection technology used by Azure Information Protection.
This cloud-based protection service uses encryption, identity, and authorization policies to help secure your files and email, and it works across multiple devices—phones, tablets, and PCs. Information can be protected both within your organization and outside your organization because that protection remains with the data, even when it leaves your organization’s boundaries.
An important thing to understand about how Azure RMS works, is that this data protection service from Azure Information Protection, does not see or store your data as part of the protection process. Information that you protect is never sent to or stored in Azure, unless you explicitly store it in Azure or use another cloud service that stores it in Azure. Azure RMS simply makes the data in a document unreadable to anyone other than authorized users and services:
The data is encrypted at the application level and includes a policy that defines the authorized use for that document.
When a protected document is used by a legitimate user or it is processed by an authorized service, the data in the document is decrypted and the rights that are defined in the policy are enforced.
The Azure Rights Management service can support all file types. For text, image, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) files, .pdf files, and some other application file types, Azure Rights Management provides native protection that includes both encryption and enforcement of rights (permissions). For all other applications and file types, generic protection provides file encapsulation and authentication to verify if a user is authorized to open the file.
Yes we can, After you have protected your documents by using Azure Information Protection, you can track how people are using these documents. If necessary, you can also revoke access to them if people should no longer be able to read them. To do this, you use the document tracking site. You can access this site from Windows computers, Mac computers, and even from tablets and phones.
You can share protected your documents with external users using Azure RMS. Now, if external users have Azure RMS subscription (O365/EMS) they would be able to receive and read without issues. If external users do not have Azure RMS and no Microsoft subscription licenses, they will receive invitation to register in a free of charge Azure RMS for individuals.
Yes you can, on your important file you can just grant read write permission to the other user's so they are not able to delete any file in any case. You can protect you files using permissions.
Yes you can use tracking to get all the information about the file.

In case of expire: For the first 30 days you will be on grace period everything will work fine then During months two through four, the subscription sits in the "disabled" state. Another label could be "admin only," as administrators can continue to access the admin portal. The IT staff can most effectively use this period to back up employee data stored on Microsoft's servers.
In case of license Removal: When you remove the license, all that user's data is held for 30 days. Admin can access the data, or restore the account if the user comes back. After 30 days, all the user's data (except for documents stored on SharePoint Online) is deleted permanently from Microsoft 365 and can't be recovered.
