Upload Your Files to Adjudicate Today
Welcome to Adjudicate Today's file upload facility.
From this page, Adjudicate Today accepts electronic delivery of files via our secure, digital LOCKBOX. There is no limit to the number of individual files you can upload nor their size, however they must be in a zip format. Only you and Adjudicate Today authorised staff can access your Lockbox.
All uploaded files are acknowledged by an automated email within a couple of minutes. If you don't receive an email, please contact us urgently.
We suggest you use this facility as a safer alternative to email when the total of all files you wish to send exceed 5MB. This is because email travels via many servers on its journey to the recipient and some servers (often university servers) will not pass on emails larger than 5MB. Also while delivery receipts are part of the email standard, many ISPs block these to negate spam, rendering them useless. Email can be delayed without either sender or receiver being made aware of the delay. This means an email submitted minutes before a deadline may not actually arrive until after the deadline has passed, rendering the email not submitted under the Act.
Adjudicate Today must receive identical hard copy of all electronic files within two business days of the electronic delivery. Please read our disclaimer (below) for details on rights and obligations for the delivery of electronic files.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our new Lockbox does not currently support the upload of folders unless you zip the files/folders prior to uploading. It is also good practice to zip your uploads to ensure no files/folders are missing as has happened previously. The zip process will preserve your folder and file structure. There are a number of free and commercial products for zipping files, including WinZip which may be downloaded by clicking here. A free open source file compressor is 7-Zip which may be downloaded by clicking here.
