    I have tested your form and I can see it is working, here is a screenshot when I was submitting your form: 

    Here is a screenshot of the submissions that were sent: 

    I can see you're using the File Upload field in your form, please do note that this is not currently supported in PDF fillable versions, you can check what you can and cannot include in your PDF fillable form on this link: https://www.jotform.com/help/312-Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator 

    Try removing that, perhaps that's causing the issue you're experiencing on your end, download the PDF fillable form again and let us know how it goes.
