The physical location of this storage has multi-layered protection. Although Assembla owns the code, databases, and all rights to the Assembla application, you retain all rights to your data.

User Information shared by the Application
You control who can see your user information. On your user profile edit page, you can set your sharing settings:
- If you select Nobody, then only you will be able to see this piece of information.
- If you select Teammates, then team members of spaces that you select will be able to see the information.
- If you select Public, then every user will be able to see the information.
Your login name is always publicly visible when it appears in a team list.
Users do not appear in searches automatically.
- If you want a user profile to appear in space searches, you need to have a Public space so that other users can search it and view it.
Workspace Information shared by the Application
You control the visibility of workspace information through the settings on the Admin tab of the space. Select the Security subtab. If you set Non-member access to None, it will not be visible to any user who is not a team member. If you set Non-member access to View, the space will be visible to any user. If you set Non-member access to Edit, any user will be able to edit the space. For both the View and Edit settings, it will show up in public searches, tag pages, and it may appear on the portal page.
Please remember that the free public spaces, and spaces with Non-member access set to "View," will be visible on the Internet. You control this setting. Please pay attention to this setting when you are creating a space, and when you edit permissions.
