    I'm using your services to create a form for a physician's office.  It is a prescription refill request form located here:  https://secure.jotform.us/form/22055953923153

    I met with one of the physicians yesterday and he seemed concerned that there could potentially be a HIPA violation (Health Information Privacy Act) if the information submitted on this form ever fell into the wrong hands.  If, say, your servers were ever hacked.  How do you recommend I set his mind at ease re: this?  Am I correct in assuming that the submitted information within the fields of the form never really resides on your server and is only captured in the recepient's e-mail?

    Please help me understand the level of security he can expect.

    It is possible to use JotForm in a HIPAA compliant way. Please see this thread, http://www.jotform.com/answers/4728-Are-form-submissions-HIPPA-compliant .
