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.
