    Hi msacademy,

    In JotForm, a public form is any form that you publish on your website by using the form embed code, On the other hand, a non-public form is one that is available only to privileged persons by making use methods such as password protection.

    We hope you find this information useful. Thank you for using JotForm!

    From what I understood in Article 2 of our Terms of Use, when you have made your forms, submissions page, or reports public, you grant us the right to display them publicly. That is so we can display the aforementioned information to anyone who has the link to it - i.e., the persons/groups whom you share the links with.

    Jotform will not compromise sensitive information to any other individual for any purpose at all, unless you make the information public yourself. In that case, Jotform has no control over who views the said information.
