    can we create a form that does not live on your server?

    are all form responses on your servers?

    With our forms, all form responses are submitted to our servers. You can set it up so that the submissions are automatically deleted from our servers by using the Auto Delete Submissions app:


    If that is still not an option and you do not want your form responses to ever reach our servers, you can also purchase the JotForm Application that you can host on your own website / server. This would ensure that all data is collected on your end, and it would not go to our servers.


    Do keep in mind that the self-hosted version of the JotForm Application doesn't have access to our widgets, but it comes with the full source code so that you or your developers can customize it to your liking.

    Please let us know if you need further clarifications or assistance, and we will be happy to help.
