    I will be getting an SSL certificate for my site.  If I host the form on say https://site.com/form.html do I need to make that form secure to insure that all transmissions will be private or the simple fact that the form is on a https will be enough?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Yes! it would be advisable to use (HTTPS) secure version of your form to maintain your website's security indicator and to make every single information secured.

    Using https://secure.jotform.com on your form code would change your normal form into a secure one.

    e.g.

    https://secure.jotform.com/form/FORM_ID

    OR 

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://secure.jotform.com/jsform/ FORM_ID "></script>
