Is there telemetry data in Dash source code? (answered: no)

I have tried below customisation to host my dash app on flask server:

import flask
server = flask.Flask(name)
app = dash.Dash(name, server=server)

if name == ‘main’:
app.run_server(host=<MY_HOST>,port=<MY_PORT>)

I am able to launch my web page on my host address and of course Dash works pretty cool! .

Coming to the point, my doubt is: Is there any usage statistics or other data collected by dash source code?. Just need to make sure none of my confidential production data/ organisational data goes outside of my host server(<MY_HOST>).

There is no telemetry included in the Dash source code. You can verify yourself in the various Dash repositories on GitHub.

The only 3rd party requests that are made are to the https://unpkg.com/#/ CDN to serve the standard JS and CSS assets. This can even be turned off by serving these files locally: https://plot.ly/dash/external-resources.
