Privacy on Notes with Smart Matches

I am happy for people who Smart Match with me to see the relevant part of my tree, however as I am starting to put a lot of private information into the Notes section for some people in my tree, I need to avoid access to this section by others. Is it possible to do this?  I am not sure whether making the site "private" really stops access to the Notes for each individual in a tree.  I am concerned that I will have to delete my site if this is not possible.  I would very much appreciate it if someone from My Heritage could clarify for me. Thanks.

Hi Christine,

Notes on a person are not available when comparing SmartMatching.

The information included in SmartMatches is:

Name, date of birth/death, place of birth/death, and any facts you may have included about the person (which are different from notes).

Also, if a person has a match with your tree, and the people surrounding him/her are marked as living, the person with the match will not see the first names of those surrounding family tree individuals. Instead, they will see <private> Brown.

I hope that clarifies things for you.

Sorry Jaiel, but when I do SmartMatches I often see other people's notes.  Also I have seen some of my Notes copied on to other sites. 

I checked again today and I can still see Notes done by other people who have put their tree on MyHeritage.
