Ok I checked the submission of the forms submitted in your account and Found %20 all over.
I am looking further to get this resolved.
Thanks for your patience.
This might have been a temporary issue.
I submitted the form with some dummy values and the submission appears to be perfectly fine.
Make sure you do not copy paste the inputs in the field, from MS Word, while testing.
Please check again and let us know if the issue persists.
