Plex Authentication token expiry time, or permanent?

Hey All :)

Simple question, title mostly states it all.

I've searched and read numerous articles and googled for hours, without finding any clear as sky, documentation for it.

I want to know for now is if the x-Plex-Token i can obtain through making a HTTP Request to sign_in.json is permanent or does expire at some point?

As in, is it safe to store in a local DB and then forget everything about it even exists, without having to worry about renewing it again in 60 or 90 days.
I know of course that the token most likely will die if I sign it out from the server/accounts page..

It's mostly for use in a local environment between a few friends.

    As far as I can tell having developed PKC for the last 1.5 years, the token is permanent
