I name my custom race's leader in the game setup, start the game and then look at my leader's name on the diplomacy screen and it defaults to my Computer's User Name. Why is this Game Collecting that information about my computer to begin with?

It my case, it names my race's name after my steam account username.  Do you happen to use the steam version?

You may be having this issue due to GOG Galaxy.  GOG Galaxy takes over your custom name and replaces it your account name (which incidentally was most people's real name or email address when GOG started). 

 

So if you have GOG Galaxy running, you have to actually ask GOG support to change your username, which is a giant pain.  I recently did this myself.  You can only play singleplayer without using the account name.
