To get information about the options of rsync have a look at its man-page:
Code:
man rsync
Code:
            --delete                delete extraneous files from dest dirs
        -u, --update                skip files that are newer on the receiver
        -r, --recursive             recurse into directories
        -v, --verbose               increase verbosity
        -z, --compress              compress file data during the transfer
Since you are not using the -p option permissions are not preserved, so your command is correct.
