    When data is submitted by a form, which country is it stored in?  Are you meeting all of the privacy acts for storing personal data?

    JotForm data centers are located in the US and Germany. We have 2 data centers in the US (Texas and Virginia) and 1 data center in Germany.

    The forms and submissions are transmitted securely with a 256 bit high-grade encryption. You can also log into JotForm site securely and download your submission reports over a secure connection using https://www.jotform.com.  

    We provide a very high security through out our hosting provider's servers for stored data. We have a very powerful cloud of servers in SSAE16 Audited facilities which provides security protection against malicious attacks like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks. 

    You have option where you can select if you want the form data to be secured. You can use the secure / SSL form URL or embed script. 

    Here is a guide on how to receive SSL submissions: http://www.jotform.com/help/63-How-can-I-receive-SSL-Submissions  

    If you want your form user to know that their data will be sent securely, you can add enable security certificate seal in your form. Here is a guide which you can refer: http://www.jotform.com/help/131-Enabling-Security-Certificate-Seal-on-Secure-Forms
