Using the users rate limit rather than the applications


i just want to make sure i know how rate limiting is decided.

if i am getting my app authorised by my users, and then i sign my api calls with that users access_token.key/secret, then the rate limits will be applied to the user rather than my application?

so for example i have 10 users, and they each somehow make 100 api calls in 15 minutes, those api calls would be spread between those users, rather than my application taking the entire 1000 calls?
