    Your TOS states, in part, "When you make a Form, Submissions page or a Report "public", you grant Company a worldwide and fully sublicensable license...".

    However, "public" (your punctuation, not mine) is not defined.

    So, what does "public" mean?

    I see that you are referring to this section of our Terms.

    Since there is an option for you to share your Forms, Submissions page, and/or Reports, you are making it public when you do that.

    When the link to your Forms is shared whether its direct link or through a web page where the form is embedded it is already considered public.

    Here's an example of a submission page shared to the public. — How-to-Share-Form-s-Submissions-Page


    Password: Password1

    And here's a sample of a (table) Report shared to the public. — How-To-Create-Form-Reports-in-JotForm


    There's also a way to password protect Report links.

    It's like you are granting us permission to have your Forms, Submissions page or Reports accessible to anyone you shared these links with.

    I hope this helps. If you have other questions or concerns regarding this, please feel free to contact us again anytime.
