When your computer is switched off, it is off. Microsoft does collect data on the way you use your computer though and many take measures to stop it.

There are others who would argue that those points but I've let the telemetry happen since W.10 came out in 2015 to no detriment that I can detect. I tend to agree with this article but of course there are others to counteract it:
