You wanna send us confidential information? Source protection is our highest priority. Please, keep in mind: Communication by telephone and email is probably not secure enough, particularly if you would like to send us sensitive information or if you are writing from an authoritarian country. Before establishing contact with us, please consider the pros and cons of various communication tools and methods and follow some basic rules.
What makes a good tip? Ideally, you are clearly articulating a problem or wrongdoing you have knowledge of. Please, provide documentation or evidence. Be specific - and patient. We will answer as soon as possible.
