[opensuse] rsync advice

I use rsync in a cron script to maintain a remote copy of some things.
When I first set this up I did not have things deleted on the remote
copy. Being an archive, I felt a few extra files are better than missing
I would now like to delete the remote-only files in a controlled
fashion. So I have run this command to see what would be deleted:
rsync -nazv --delete --delete-after --rsh=ssh theDir backup:/vol1/theDir
My question is, would this rsync command only delete files on the
destination system? In my case, in backup:/vol1/theDir? I do not want
anything deleted in 'theDir'. I do not expect that there are any local
files that are not in the remote. But just in case.
In my dry run, I saw that there were many hundreds of files that could
be deleted. Perhaps I should just collect the names and see if they
exist locally. Which they should not... But would rsync ever delete
files in 'theDir'?
