Do the saved songs in the section "Your music" use data?

I'm asking if the songs which I add to the "Your Music" section use data when I play them over and over again?

Short answer: depends.

 

If you have them downloaded for "offline playback" then no, they don't. 

 

If you play them pretty frequently, chances are it only used data the first time and you're replaying it from the cache, so it's not using data. The downside of this is that it still takes up the space on your phone. (Go to settings and look at how much space Spotify eats up!)

 

However, if you do play it on one device, and then play it on another device where it's not been played before, then it's using data the first time you play it there.
