Is a projected image of the sun safe? (UV)

I'm using my 10x50 binoculars to project the sun onto a piece of white paper. It works great, but I'm wondering if the projected image itself is 100% safe to view? Does the UVA and UVB bounce off the paper at all?

None of the NASA, Scientific American, etc tutorials mention any danger, so I'm assuming it's ok.

Thanks.
