    I need to collect private information from new employees, banking account numbers, social insurance etc.  Can this be done through a JotForm banking form on a ssl connection?

    Forms are indeed secure for collecting all types of information.  For further details on form security, please see the following thread:

    Certain banking details we do not allow for collecting directly through forms.  From our terms of use:

You may not use the JotForm to collect certain types of sensitive information, including but not limited to credit card information and any type of login credentials. You may collect some sensitive information such as social security numbers or driver’s license numbers, but you are required to use best security practices of JotForm including SSL and Encrypted Forms features. You are solely responsible for compliance with any data protection and privacy laws and rules applicable to the sensitive information.
