The repositories used in Kallithea are all hosted on the filesystem as
regular git repositories. At any time you can stop using Kallithea,
and use the git repository standalone or through another tool.

Of course, information about pull requests, comments given on the
code, etc., which is stored in the Kallithea database and not in the
repositories, would not 'survive' if you stop using Kallithea.

Best regards,
