How secure is the information that people submit through our forms?

You can enable SSL on your form to transmit the data securely. It is simple to enable SSL on forms created with JotForm just change http to https
When getting the Embed Code you can also choose the secure form option:
1. Open the form in JotForm
2. Click on 'Setup & Embed'
3. Click Embed Form
3. Enable 'Secure Form' then copy the embed code.
We use a 256-bit Godaddy SSL Certificate. Here is what they say about the security in their FAQ:
What Is the Encryption Strength of Your SSL Certificates?
All of our SSL certificates support high-grade 256-bit encryption.
The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the user's browser and the server that the website resides on. For example, the combination of a Firefox browser and an Apache Web server normally enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with our SSL certificates. This means that depending on the Web browser and Web server that combine to establish the secure connection through one of our SSL certificates, the encryption strength of the secure connection may be 40, 56, 128, or 256 bit.
Here are some additional suggestions to increase the security of your data:
It is possible to use JotForm in a HIPAA compliant way. Please take a look at the following thread:

Yes, this is still secure. However, it is recommended to send SSL "secure form" link if you ask for some sensitive information.
