"Since they (mostly) don't own the domains how can they collect and retain any data?"

Because all the traffic has to go through their servers first (remember, they're a VPN, meaning they stand between you and the supposed destination). Furthermore, since they're an encryption endpoint, they can operate "outside the envelope" and are free to sniff the request before passing it on.
