    I've read your terms of use information and have a question about the following paragraph:

    Collecting Sensitive Information. You may not use the JotForm Service to collect certain types of sensitive information, including but not limited to, credit card information and any type of login credentials.

    I am planning to use JotForm to interact with my Square account for event registration.  Obviously, we need to collect payment information (credit/debit card) and another example is birth dates for competitors entering our event.  So, it is not clear what is meant by the above statement.  Please clarify.

    Thank you!

    You can do that with Square payment integration, it is against our Terms to collect payment information in plain text (like credit card numbers, and all other info related to credit cards).

    You can integrate with Square by following:
