       SSL or Secure Sockets Layer, is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.  This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.  What this means is, though the data stored on our servers, such as form data and submissions data, is encrypted, the traffic between your website and our servers is not.  For most applications this is a non issue, though with sensitive information such as credit card information, all necessary steps must be taken to ensure data can not be intercepted.  This is why we allow our users to also encrypt data while it is going to and from our servers.  Though with the free accounts we only allow 10 such submissons where as our least expensive option offers 1000.
