But Ubuntu can read and write to NTFS, so if you need this partitions only for storage data, not for system, you shouldn't worry about this.

Just a caveat:

You should never change a filesystem (provided it will convert) WITHOUT doing a backup first. It's irresponsible of YOU to assume that you will not lose any data in the process regardless of the outcome.

Just a head's up to you and anyone else thinking about such a task.
