ubuntu-report -f send no
I'm not aware of it collecting data, however it wouldn't surprise me. It looks like this is something that can be turned off from the terminal --at least in the main Ubuntu distro, not sure how it works in the other desktop environments. Can try the following command.

It's understandable. Privacy is always going to be a struggle, especially since there is little regulation on how data can be used. It's being thrown left and right to advertisers. I'm not going to start a political debate on whether or not this data should be regulated. However, it would be nice if these companies would just respect our right to privacy. I'd be willing to pay for an operating system that doesn't violate my privacy and that can prove it. I hate the direction that everything is going. Pretty much why I adblock all sites and block cookies and trackers with Ghostery. Not that I don't want to support the developers (or those that publish articles, and so on). I'm more than happy to donate money to them if I like the content. Just sick of my data getting tossed around for somebody else's profit. Unfortunately, just not using the internet is not an option.
