    What is the difference between the SSL Secure submissions in the bronze and silver plans and the Hippa Compliant forms.  Are the SSL Secure submissions not really secure?  The Gold plan is quite a jump in price for Hippa .  Is there an option to add hippa compliance without having to purchase the Gold Plan?  

    Thank you,

    MG

    Submission data sent using SSL is indeed secure.  HIPAA compliance has a whole other set of rules for data management other than just ensuring the data is secure.  Generally, HIPAA compliance is required for users in the healthcare industry.  If your industry/company does not require HIPAA compliance, HIPAA compliant forms would be substantial overkill as far as security goes.
