Project for the web data storage

New Contributor

Hi, I am new to Microsoft Project for the Web and would like to understand more on it.

Where is the data stored on? 

My company's projects are confidential, is it secure to use Microsoft Project for the Web?

Thanks Sam. Are there any other ways to export Microsoft Project for the web (perhaps to a .mpp file)? I noticed there is an option to export to excel.
Hi Rel, The only option at the moment is export to excel. I know there soon be the ability to create a Project for the web project from an .mpp file but not sure on timelines yet
