    How does your company track submissions if we can copy and paste source code to our own website?

    Not sure how your subscribtion model works if users can generate a form once and then use it indefinitely on other websites. If there is some embedded code to track this then could users not simply disable this so you can't track and charge for submissions??

    The source code generated for a form contains code that make the submission pass through our servers. Each submission is then tracked and counted for the corresponding account. I don't think there is any way to bypass this, because the form's action value is set to our server's submission processor, submit.php.

    The only way to use the form without being tracked for submissions is to change the <form action="" into your own custom submission script. Doing so has a lot of disadvantages. Since the data is no longer passed to our server, the user does not email alerts from us anymore and the data won't be saved in our servers.

    I hope I was able to answer your question to the best of my knowledge. Let me know if there's anything else that's bothering you.
