    Hello Otto,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to send your submission data to your own database. Is that correct?

    Yes it possible to achieve your requirement. Here are the options available:

    #1.  You can post the submission data to your own page by enabling the "Send Post Data" of your form's preferences. You can set the custom thank you URL in your form to redirect to your own thank you page where you can read the submission data. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page 

    #2. You can take advantage of our Zapier integration app as well. Take a look at here: http://apps.jotform.com/app/zapier_integration. You may also like to check the following URL which should help you: https://zapier.com/zapbook/jotform/mysql/4061/add-jotform-submissions-to-mysql/
