The fix ubuntu website provides a simple snippet of code -- which they break down and explain -- that will give a touch more privacy.

If you're an Ubuntu user and you're using the default settings, each time you start typing in Dash (to open an application or search for a file on your computer), your search terms get sent to a variety of third parties, some of which advertise to you.

Ubuntu should protect user privacy by default. Since it doesn't, you can use the code to the left to disable the privacy invasive parts of Ubuntu.
