    We'd like to say our people who gives their personal details on our forms that their info are in safe. What is the level of our data security? Is there any program or protocol to keep the data in safe? If so, we'd like to declare it on our website.

    Hello yeryuzu,

    All submission data on our server are secure. We have a very powerful cloud of servers in SSAE16 Audited facilities which provides security protection against malicious attacks like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks.

    If you use SSL/secure form URL to accept submission, the data transferred from your browser to our server will also be secure. We support high-grade 256-bit encryption.

    You have option where you can select if you want the form data to be secured. You can use the secure / SSL form URL or embed script. 

    Here is a guide on how to receive SSL submissions:

    If you want your form user to know that their data will be sent securely, you can add enable security certificate seal in your form. Here is a guide which you can refer:

    Please be informed that in free accounts you can only receive 10 secure / SSL submissions. Please check our pricing page for more information on available plans and it's submission limits.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Is it peer to peer encryption, or is it only encrypted on the jotform server?
