What about global and private labels in Confluence?

When I try to add a label to a content page, where I can choose the type of label I want to add?

Some labels are marked as global and some are marked as private in different spaces. But where I can see the both options (if global or private) together? Do I have the choice to select a private or a global label only in a private space or on article, that is protected?

Thanks!

Hi Tobias,

Atlassian deprecated personal labels in Version 4.1:

(https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/confluence-4-1-upgrade-notes-264705286.html?_ga=2.214689170.448558304.1501487689-1221546829.1499255503#Confluence4.1UpgradeNotes-Personallabelsdeprecated)

They are still there, as far as I can see, but hidden and deprecated and can be gone with every new Confluence version, so I wouldn't use that feature anymore. 

If you really want, you can still create them and look at your own personal labels as described here:

There are pages in our Confluence 5.9.5 that won't allow me to add labels, the error I get is something about only being able to add private labels. I assume these were ported from 4.1 with some sort of config that needs to be disabled. Any clue?
