    Creating a jotform and obtaining sensitive data

    Asked by logan  on October 20, 2014 at 02:14 PM

    I have a wordpress website for my business which is renting out apartments.

     

    I want to include a form where people can fill out ALL of their information for when they want to apply for a spot, this includes SSN, previous employment, full names, etc. (basically a lot of very private info). I want to know how secure this site is, how it works, and if you have a team that can create a form for us and how much that would cost.


    Would it link to your site, or something we can embed on ours?

     

    I've attached a link to the form we want to use, but this is a generic one and I want to edit it to our needs.

    Thanks,

    Logan

    Hi Logan.

    After taking a look at the PDF file that you have attached, I must say that we do not allow such details to be collected for the reason of security of people filling out jotforms created in our JotForm Builder.

    For this reason I would like to suggest to take a look at our Terms of use.

    Any jotform (and one based on that PDF would) that is breaking our terms of use gets disabled and account locked, as mentioned above, in order to protect the people filling out the jotforms.

    Would it link to your site, or something we can embed on ours?

    You can use a direct link for people visiting your website to go and fill out the jotform on its dedicated page (only jotform is shown), or you can embed it onto your own website and use it there as if it is its part.

    I want to know how secure this site is

    You can read here about our HIPAA compliance. We also offer jotforms to be filled out and submitted over encrypted channel.

    and if you have a team that can create a form for us and how much that would cost.

    We will be happy to provide you with assistance in setting something up with you over our forums, but there is no option to pay to have the jotform created for you.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben
