In AEM Assets 6.2,  how can a user create a collection that is private to only themselves unless they choose to share with other users?

At the stages of creating a collection, I have the "add User" option where I can grant users editor, owner or viewer permissions. Even if I don't give anyone else viewer permission, I find every user can see my collection. I would assume not giving access to other users would prevent anyone from seeing the collection.

In my instance, users are granted read, create, modify level permissions to content/dam/collections. I found this level of access means that they see all collections created by every user. I found granting read to collections was necessary. If I don't give the user read level access but give them modify and create to content/dam/collections, then they can not see their own collections. How can I configure my user permissions so that other users don't see all collections but a user can create a collection?

Thanks

After reading this discussion, I am still not clear if this question was answered:

How can I configure my user permissions so that other users don't see all collections but a user can create a collection?

In our situation, we are multi-tenant  6.4.1 - and currently all (non-private) collections new and existing are visible to all AEM authors.  We want to setup permissions so that only people of a particular group, or business unit can see new and existing within their respective teams, but not all in the repository.

*the same is true for Projects!
