    do all form submissions go via a server of yours?

    What I'm not clear about is after the form is created and a few minor customisations to make it work with our email server, wouldn't the form function with zero dependence on any of your infrastructure?

    Or is it not possible to use our own infrastructure to submit the forms because it would ruin your business model?

    You are free to take full JotForm form code (Embed Form -> Source -> Download Zip) and integrate it with your own script. JotForm is a service for people who do not want to (or have ability to) write server side code (such as PHP scripts) which can send a form submission via an email server. 

    In addition to sending emails we also have many more features. For example, you can download your submissions in Excel. 

    JotForm is a quick and easy tool to create your forms. But if you have the time or resources, you can certainly take the form code for free and implement the back end yourself. We always encouraged that.

    When you go over 100 monthly submissions quota, we sent you an email that says your account is scheduled to be disabled tomorrow noon EST time. If it is friday or weekend, your account will be scheduled to be disabled on Monday noon. On the other hand your forms will become deactivated. They will stop working and the users will see an error message.
