    I was going to use JotForm but allowing it to delete submissions and adding submissions to my form seems rather invasive

    If you want to use this app http://auto-delete.jotform.io/ and all of our apps they will request you to allow access to the specified actions detailed in the app, in this case the auto-delete app will request you access to these actions: 

    All the apps will ask you to allow permission to do their actions. 

    This will only affect your forms for the function that the app does, but you can be sure with your data and forms. 

    If you have any other questions, please let us know.

    And Just to clarify further - the JotForm  - Weebly App uses the JotForm API to create and embed forms on your weebly website. 

    The JotForm API first asks your permission before granting other applications (like the JotForm - Weebly app) access to your account - this particular app needs all the permissions you listed. 


    The JotForm card on your weebly dashboard has the ability to mark entries/submissions as "read", such that your inbox will always indicate the accurate number of unread entries/submissions.

    This is the only part of the API where "write access" is required - marking your submissions/entries as "read". 

    You still have total control of who or what accesses your account - see here, and you can revoke that access at any time. 

    If you have further questions/need us to clarify further - please let us know.
