    I set up a number of forms for clients (veterinary practice owners in the United Kingdom, and as we have a new GDPR ruling coming into place in the EU in May 2018, a client has asked whether - for the email server, are the emails encrypted?

    Not sure what to answer. The pages that the jotforms come off in each website are secure server https - does this make the e-mails secure?

    Thank you for your help with this

    Unfortunately we do not use encrypted connection to send email notifications. We however are working on the details to be in full compliance by the deadline, which is May 25th.

    We will update you on this thread.
