It is just a feature of the Contacts app. I don't see a setting to disable it. It is not from storing your contacts in iCloud (which is safe by the way) it is just a "helpful" feature of showing you the area around the address. So what is happening in the background is Apple Maps is looking up the address to show you the map.

You might be able to uninstall Apple Maps to turn it off. It may be built into the operating system so this may not help. You can install Google Maps as an alternative, but since it is not integrated with the apps, you will not be able to use it to automatically map things.

Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
