    If you have embedded your form using the secure embed code:


    It will use SSL based submissions.  For Free accounts, we limit SSL/payment submissions to 10 per month.  You are currently at 11.

    I checked your page and it does not look like you used the secure embed method.  Is there another place you have embedded your form or possible sent it via email using the https link?

    In any case, I went ahead and reset your limits to give you some time to get this sorted.  Keep in mind we can only do this once per account.  Should you go over your SSL limit again, you would need to upgrade in order to restore your forms.

    If you would like to have us check another page, just let us know the URL and we will be happy to have a look.

    Checking or unchecking the secure form box will only adjust the embed code you are given.  It does not change whether or not the form uses SSL.  You would need to change the embed code or link to your form in order to change it back to using regular submissions. 

    For example, this link would use regular submissions for your form:


    And this one would use SSL:


    If your forms link starts with https://secure, it will use SSL submissions no matter what is checked in the form builder.
