Yes, your credit card info is captured by Apple and kept on file. However, your membership is NOT automatically renewed at end of the year.

I don't understand why they ask for your adderss and real name for?

The same reason why most retailers ask for your address even if its for an electric purchase. I believe it used to help fight against credit card fraud.

Also... what you're buying is akin to a subscription, i.e. Apple Developer membership/agreement for 1 year. It's treated differently than buying candy at the supermarket. There is likely a legal requirement to establish identity of the "subscriber", and thus Apple may be collecting the legal name & registered address. Moreover, if you misuse the subscription and say upload confidential pre-release information to PirateBay, they need to know where to send the Feds :)
