Privacy using IRC protocol

I'm sort of an amateur to IRC, I used to use AIM for OTR messaging. I was
wondering if messages between myself and another user are private through
Pidgin are private. IE, if I message another user directly, can our
conversation be seen by a third party in some channel or is our
conversation strictly between us? This is not an issue of security, we
simply prefer to know that we can't be "overheard".

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
