I don't understand why this needs to store all the typed code on their server.

Couldn't this data just be deleted once the lookup has run?

I imagine they're using all the code they get to update their 'what is popular' examples for all the subsequent lookups; or that's what they want to be able to do.

Of course it could be. They want to monetize it somehow.
