If I share a folder with someone, can they edit my data and add or remove items from the folder?

Yes. All folder editors can edit all items within folders, add and remove items, and even rename or delete the folder itself.


If I share a folder with someone, can they delete my data?

Editors can delete your folder, if empty, but they cannot delete your data. Only the editor that created it can permanently delete a map or flight plan.
