Cache-Control: no-cache is better in this case:

See: http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/Issues/cache-private.html

<citation>
(1) "Cache-control: private" remains as in Roy's draft, but
	with a mention of extensibility explicitly included.
	Single-user-agent caches are effectively allowed to ignore this
	directive.

(2) "Cache-control: no-cache" is defined to mean exactly the
	same thing as "Cache-control: private", but with no exception
	for user-agent caches.
