    Thats perfect.

    You can check by opening your secure form url in its own page.


    Note: you only get 10 SSL submissions a month with a free account.

    Thanks Yeah, I tried getting the company to budge for more, but they are going to wait and see how the service works for them.

    Thanks for your time!

    So to make sure the way we have it embedded it is safe and okay? I have attached a screenshot after I have right click on the form in Chrome and clicked frame info.

    Yes. Your form is embedded in that page properly so that the form data itself is secure.

    The problem with embedding secure forms in an unsecure webpage, is that the webpage itself is always going to report that the webpage isnt secure, even if your form is.

    You have 3 solutions for this.

    1) Get an SSL certificate for your website. Costs $$ 

    2) Have a link to your secure form on Jotform which, when visited, will tell the users browser that the page is indeed a completely secure, encrypted data connection. You could use the Custom URL tool and add  a logo or graphics so the form has a similar look to your own website. You could also use the a custom Thankyou URL to redirect them back to your site after the form has been submitted. 

    3) Just tell the visitors of your site that the form is secure. 

    These 3 options all have their pro's and con's, really only you can decide which is the best option for you. Personally, I feel, if data secuirty is your prime objective and you dont want to pay for an SSL cert of your own, option 2 is the way to go.
