Where are my data stored?

Locally, in your operating system user data folder. c:/.../Users/xxx/AppData/Roaming on Windows, ~/.config on Linux and ~/Library/Application Support on macOS.

Are you collecting usage data?

Yes, but only anonymous data through Google Analytics. Besides Google Analytics standard collected data (OS, screen size, etc.) we are also collecting some events happening in the application. A typical event includes the following JSON {category: 'delete', action: 'environment'}, {category: 'server', action: 'start' }, etc.
None of your mock data, routes or URLs are collected.
