Auto Save in Excel Spreadsheets

When a document in Excel is 'Auto-Saved' is it stored on your own PC or does it go to a central server somewhere? Friend has a lot of sensitive data each month and is worried that auto-save sends it away from her PC to a central server where it may be 'hacked' by some unscrupulous person. Any help gratefully received.

"...worried that auto-save sends it away from her PC to a central server where it may be 'hacked' by some unscrupulous person."

Tell your friend to stop worrying - the file is auto-saved locally, there's no 'central server' involved.
