What happens file and folder permissions when I transfer data from an Ntfs drive to a FAT32 drive?

Hi. My computer is dead but Ntfs Hard drive is o.k. There are 5 user accounts on the drive. I want to transfer all data from this drive to an external usb FAT32 drive. I then want to be able to access  this data from any other pc I plug into. Essentially, will the file and folder permissions get left behind?

NTFS is where your permissions lie. If you move them to a FAT32 drive all the permissions go away.
