if you encrypt the database it won't stop it from showing on the board.
besides , I would imagine that if they get anything like this going it won't help if you had the databse or anything else encrypted.
your host has the absolute right to see anything you have stored on their servers etc. and if they are forced to give over that info, it won't matter .
however, I wouldn't worry too much about it. this is not anytihing new.
