NowComment's flexible comment notifications system lets you control the volume of emails you get when people comment on your documents. You can choose to get notified only when people reply directly to you, or when they comment on a conversation you've posted to, or each time someone comments on one of your “Favorite” documents or on a document in a Favorite Group, etc. For more information see our Features Gallery page.
These let you control what information about Public Documents other users can see on your Profile page. Most people check all the boxes, because the idea of Public Documents is publicize them as much as possible, but if you want to have some restrictions you can set them here.
There's also a blue RSS button that people can click to automatically be informed by RSS of new Public Documents that you upload. Private Documents don't show on the RSS feed; only people and Groups you specifically invite to Private Documents know about or can access them.
