    You can use the "Send Form Post Data" feature to send the data to your database. However, you need to create  a PHP programming for that. Here's a guide on How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    You can export your submissions into and Excel or CSV file. After that you can upload or import it to your database. Please refer to this guides:

    You can also use the Google Spreadsheet integration so that the form submissions will go to your Google Spreadsheet file. Here's a guide on How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Google-Spreadsheet

    Lastly, we have  JotForm Webhooks. Here's a blog posting about it: Send-Instant-Submission-Notifications-with-Webhooks

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
