A lot of traces of your activities are left on your computer's hard
disk. Such traces can easily be gathered by anyone with a bit of
computer knowledge when no special measure is taken to prevent this
(the only serious one being full disk encryption).
Again, if you do mind this fact, Tails might be just what you need.

Tails doesn't encrypt your documents by default
===============================================
The documents that you might save on storage devices will not be encrypted by
default. But Tails provides you with tools to encrypt your documents, such as
GnuPG, or encrypt your storage device, such as LUKS. It is likely that the files
you may create will keep tracks that they were created using Tails.
**If you need to access the local hard-disks** of the computer you are using, be
conscious that you might then leave trace of your activities with Tails on it.
It doesn't clear the metadata of your documents for you
