    Is data encrypted during the upload process when using an offline form?

    Secondly, the data of my form will be sensitive in nature, when using an offline form, is the data 'encrypted' during the upload process?

    You can do an offline form in Jotform through the fillable PDF form. Unfortunately, the fillable PDF is using our standard non-HTTPS link when submitting so I don't think encryption is enabled there. But in general, Jotform is secure and we take it very seriously. 

    For more details such as the limitation of the fillable PDF, I recommend checking the following guide:

    If you are really concerned about the security, you may consider using the online form version and submit when you are connected to the internet. We have an encryption feature for added security:
