To save custom data

I have certain data that I want to store in a database. When I set up Liferay, I set up MYSQL database for it. Wanted to know if I should store my custom data by creating tables in the Liferay database itself or should I make my own custom database separately?

What is the recommended practice? Asking this, because my custom data may be sensitive and I may not wish to merge it with Liferay DB. Does creating custom tables within Liferay DB provide security? I believe the service builder creates tables within Liferay DB itself if not specified otherwise.

Please help.

If you data is sensitive and if you are using liferay as a portal, you shouldn't save your data with liferay especially because liferay cache data.
