This is a volunteer Help list for users of R, which is open source, so you
can see all its code. I can answer no to your questions, unless you are
using one of R's innumerable packages that interacts with the internet and
to which the user may give personal information to enable the desired
functionality (logins, etc.).  But of course how do you know that I am not
some malevolent agent or organization wishing to mislead you for my own
nefarious purposes?
