    Hi there,

    You can use the Send Post post feature to transmit data and use it
    on your own script.

    To see how it works please do the following:

    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
    <? print_r($_POST); ?>
    2. Go to "Setup & Share" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
    3. Enable the "Send Post Data"
    4. Save and submit your form.

    Hope this helps.
