Only you can see and download the raw traces.

Everybody can download GPS points for an area, which will include your 
points, but when they do so they (a) have no idea which user uploaded 
those points and (b) don't get any timestamp information for the points 
at all. In addition your points will be mixed up with those of anybody 
else that has uploaded traces in that area (whether public or not).
