1. Material we accept
Unileaks will accept restricted or censored material of political, ethical, diplomatic or historical significance which has a connection to higher education, an agency or government body working in partnership with an institution, e.g., a University.
We absolutely do not accept rumor, opinion, other kinds of first-hand accounts or material that is publicly available elsewhere.
If you are sending us something, we encourage you to include a brief description of why the document is important highlighting significant issues. This will assist us to write up the story and release it faster.
Please provide a document index for easy of refference. This is simply a list of documents you have submitted, their name and title.
2. Our anonymous electronic drop box
Please review TOR which helps assist in improving online security:
2.1 Its easy to submit
Please see our security section for information about setting up email encryption. Submitting documents to our journalists is protected by law in better democracies. We never keep logs of who uses the drop box or where they are coming from.
2.2 Help with any questions about submitting
You can also email us and we will answer any questions or solve any problems you might have with submitting by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
2.3 Protection for you
Please see our section on security for more detailed information: here
Unileaks does not record any source-identifying information and there are a number of mechanisms in place to protect even the most sensitive submitted documents from being sourced. We do not keep any logs.
We can not comply with requests for information on sources because we simply do not have the information to begin with.
Best bet send the documents you want published to the following address :
UL - PO Box 150, Brunswick East, VIC, 3057, AUSTRALIA
3. Directions for how to submit material
3.1 Submissions via upload
This service will be avaliable shortly.
3.2 Submissions Via Post
Submissions to the post
- First place your leak onto a floppy disk, CD, DVD or a USB Flash Drive. If you are using a floppy disks, please create two as they are often unreliable. If you only have paper documents, we will scan them if they are of significant political or media interest (if you are unsure whether this may be the case, please contact us first). This will delay the process however.
- You may post to whatever country in the list that you feel most suitable given the nature of the material and your postal service. If your country’s mail system is unreliable, you may wish to send multiple copies, use DHL, FedEX or another postal courier service.
If you use a floppy disk, be sure to send two for increased reliability.
You can use whatever return address you like, but make doubly sure you have written the destination correctly as postal workers will not be able to return the envelope to you.
After receiving your postal submission our staff upload the data to UniLeaks and then destroy the mailed package.
3.3 High risk postal submissions
If your leak is extremely high risk, you may wish to post away from your local post office at a location that has no witnesses or video monitoring.
Many CD and DVD writers will include the serial number of the DVD or CD writer onto the CD/DVDs they write. If the post is intercepted this information can in theory be used to track down the manufacturer and with their co-operation, the distributor, the sales agent and so on. Consider whether there are financial records connecting you to the CD/DVD writer sale if your adversary is capable of intercepting your letter to us and has the will to do this type of expensive investigation. Pay cash if you can for the CD/DVD writer.
Similarly, CD and DVD media themselves include a non-unique manufacturing "batch number" for each group of around 10,000 CD/DVDs made. Pay cash when buying the CD or DVD. Try to choose a store without video cameras at the register.
Although we are aware of no instances where the above has been successfully used to trace an individual, anti-piracy operations have used the information to trace piracy outfits who sell tens or hundreds of thousands of counterfeit CDs or DVDs.
If you post it to us, a good option is to encrypt the USB file/CD file and then contact us at a later date via live online chat with the encryptin passphrase. See our section on security here That way if the post is intercepted, the data can not be copied.
If you suspect you are under physical surveillance, discreetly give the letter to a trusted friend or relative to post. On some rare occasions, targets of substantial political surveillance have been followed to the post office and have had their posted mail seized covertly. In this rare case if you are not intending to encrypt the data and if the police or intelligence services in your country are equipped to perform DNA and/or fingerprint analysis you may wish to take the appropriate handling precautions.
3.4 Postal addresses
You may post only to our post office box in Australia. We are working on networking alternatives around the world and are currently in contact with a similar organisation to make use of their network.
In Australia: PO Box 150, Brunswick East, VIC, 3057, AUSTRALIA.
To: "UL" or any name likely to evade postal censorship in your country.
