    Does Ubuntu sent any data to Canonical?

    1. I know - it does. Basically, my question is - how to block it? I don't want ANY (totally nothing) data to be sent to Canonical.

    2. Does Canonical share any data collected from Ubuntu users to the third party? If yes - to whom?

    The type of data is only hardware related and is used for development.

    Ways to disable data collection and or opt out.

    The information sent is only about your hardware. It's not as bad as Windows 10 and all the data they collect and tracking they have.
