    "Terms and privacy" captcha on jotform - leading to Google?

    Asked by barclay21 on December 23, 2013 at 12:07 PM

    Hi there,

    on our jot form next to the captcha, there's a "Terms and privacy" link which leads to Google (somewhat confusingly). Can you explain why this is there? Can it be removed? I think it is a little odd for users. Plus our site has its own T+C page which is the intended page of those conditions.

    the page is here:

    Thank you for getting in touch with us. 

    The field uses Google reCaptcha service, which is free and intended to to verify the required human interaction on the page (as opposed to automated scripts). 

    The link is there as a default setting on the field to inform users of the terms of services offered by google through the recaptcha API. 

    Please go through it, and if the terms of use are acceptable and your services will not violate them in any way, you can hide that field by adding some CSS to the form (let us know if you need help with this)

    We would advice adding it to your T + C page as an addendum addressing third party services used on the site. 

    Does this clarify the matter? Please let us know how we can assist further.

    Thanks. Do please send the 'comment out' code and instructions on where to sit it in the CSS or other setup to make this work when the form is embedded on my site.

    Thank you for your response. 

    Please open your form for editing on your Jotform account and inject the following CSS into your form exactly as it is: 

    #recaptcha_privacy {

    display: none;


    I notice you have some additional CSS customizations, you can add this above or below, it will work out the same way.

    Please let us know if you hit any bumps.

    Please note Keila that there is no need to answer on both threads (especially with the same answer). From now on please reply only on thread http://www.jotform.com/answers/571752 where my colleague had already been helping you with this case.

    Thank you.
