What's the difference between Open and Private?

When creating a dataset or Data Project, you're given the option between open and private. Open datasets and projects will be visible, in their entirety, to anyone signed into They could be returned in search results, will be visible under your profile and will be available for querying and downloads. No other members will be able to change the dataset or project without explicit permission from you by adding them as a contributor with edit rights. If you are in an organization you have additional options for determining who can access and use your data. For more information see the article on setting dataset permissions .
