    Hello Davin.

    That depends on what kind of data you will be collecting on your forms. If you will be collecting private and sensitive information from your users, then you should be using secure SSL form submissions, so that this information is not sent in the open and so that servers between you and your users can't see what information your users are sending you.

    If you are using secure SSL submissions, your website should also have SSL enabled. This is to prevent so called mixed-content related issues, where most browsers would not properly load your page or your form if you embedded the form securely on a non SSL enabled website.

    However, if you are not collecting any private / sensitive information from your users, you do not need to use SSL submissions.

    Please let us know if you need further clarification, we will be happy to help.
