    We allow this for forms that meet our criteria or follow our recommendations. Nevertheless, I have forwarded this to our reviewer team for review. Thank you for reporting.

    Hello Chris, thank you for this information. Collection of sensitive personal information like social security numbers are allowed here at JotForm given that our users will use best security practices of JotForm.

    It is also stated in our Terms of Use that upon using JotForm's service, they agreed that they will be solely responsible for compliance with any data protection and privacy laws and rules applicable to the sensitive information.
