    If I choose to have form submissions sent to me via email, do you also store the data within your system?

    Hi Kate,

    All of the submissions that are made on your jotform are sent into our protected back-end for storage.

    Now if you set the email notifications you can also get the notification with any data from your jotform in the email as well.

    What this means is that data in emails will come to you (if set) and the entire data regarding the submission will be sent to our back-end servers for your safe keeping. You can delete this data as it comes in, after some time, or just leave it there as it is, all depending on what you would like to achieve.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben
