    It appears all of my submissions are SSL, yet the sites the forms are on are not SSL sites. I don't really have an issue upgrading but if I don;t have to I'd rather not. So, how is it these submissions are SSL submissions and not the normal non secure ones.

    Thanks!

    You are using a secure URL of your form in your embed code:

    <script src="https://www.jotform.com/jsform/13043920602"></script>

    if you wish to use the standard submissions, change it to:

    <script src="http://www.jotform.com/jsform/13043920602"></script>

     

    SSL transmissions are encrypted and just mean that no one can snoop on the forms data as it gets transmitted from the forms users PC to the JotForm server. Its for when data security is of the utmost importance, e.g payment transactions and/or when highly sensitive personal data is involved. I dont think either of those are particularly that applicable for this specific form, but only you can really be the judge of that.

     

    Hope that helps.
