Can encrypted forms share data entries with a separate, linked form?

    All of my forms are encrypted, and must be upon submission. My primary form, which is extremely long, has several fields (name, email address, "firm name", and privacy statement confirmation) that are required prior to making any product selections on the next page. The majority of the selections will lead to the primary form being submitted, HOWEVER, a couple of the selections actually link to other various (depending on selections) encrypted Jotforms that are each located separate pages of our site.

    Is it possible for the primary (encrypted) form to share any of the entries (name, email address, "firm name") with the secondary (encrypted) form? At the moment, the user must enter data, select/link to the secondary form, and then re-enter same data before completing the rest of the secondary form and submitting.

    If they don't do duplicate entry, I have no way of knowing who to contact.

    Thanks for your advice!

    Since the form data is encrypted when the form is initially submitted, it would not be possible to pass the data from one form to another via URL parameters.  I did a bit of testing and it did result in encrypted data being passed:

    It is possible to pass the data when not using encrypted forms:
