For private data you can still back it up to the cloud (though it's essential to keep a backup in your own hands as well incase something happens to the cloud service) just put it in an encrypted archive first then upload the encrypted archive file. This way you get the advantages of an off-site backup but because you encrypted the file yourself before upload you can be sure that if the cloud provider gets hacked or something then even if hackers get into your cloud account they still won't be able to read your private data (as long ofcourse as you don't use the same password to encrypt the file as the password you have for the online account). But always keep backups on-site as well, it's about having as many independent (this is why synced backups aren't such a good idea, better to backup manually) copies of data as possible, if one is lost the others should still be ok.
