does curl with ftp/ssl transfer file encrypted?

I am using a command similar to this example:

curl --ftp-ssl -u username:password -o /save/file ftp://mydomain.com/myfile

to transfer some files to an internal server. I am curious if the actual files being transferred are then encrypted as well or is it just the username:password?

The files contain sensitive information and the paths specified in the curl command are also sensitive.

Is it possible for anyone to use that information negatively?

It depends on your configuration. See:

[en.wikipedia.org...]

But why not use the more-popular sftp? (e.g. scp command)?

But, hey, I'll give you props for wanting to be secure. :)
