    If I chose to publish a form using the "email" option does that mean the form and all replies to it remain on the Jotform servers?  If I were to publish it on my drupal website, would the information for replies still be sent to JotForm?  Is this information safe?

    Wherever your form is, the data (answers) from the form are sent to JotForm servers. This means that regardless whether the form is opened through its direct link on JotForm, or by being embedded into your Drupal website, the answers will be sent to our servers.

    All submissions are by default made through a secure HTTPS connection, so the data is by default sent to our servers in a safe and secure way.

    On regards to different ways of publishing a form, if you share the form by using our Email option, your users will be sent a direct link to our form on JotForm. This means that they will directly open the form on our site, and submit it here. If you embed the form into your Drupal site, it will load a JotForm form as a part of your page, and submit the data to our servers from there.
