Where are my information stored?

Add-ons for World of Warcraft can only store information in a specific folder, the WTF folder in your World of Warcraft folder. WTF stands for Warcraft Text Files. The WTF folder organize your settings by accounts, so you can share your computer with someone else without having you settings messed up. World of Warcraft also allow add-ons developer to store data either at a global account-wise level or at a character level. Some roleplaying add-ons like MyRolePlay store your information at a character level. It means that for each one of your character a myroleplay.lua file with that specific character's information will be created in the WTF folder. Total RP 3 uses the account-wise level storage, so you can access any profile from any character.
