Ah, I see - I just never knew that.

All the private tracks I have, are tracks in very poor quality, e.g.
tracks with lots of noise, places where I forgot to turn of the GPS, or

I'm not really worried about my privacy, its more an issue that my
"garbage tracks" will only be noise to others (90% noise, 10% good).

I suppose I should delete these tracks again, and get em fixed locally.
