    JotForm does not screen or scan files in any way. As mentioned in our terms of use, you own the submissions you receive through your forms, which includes the uploaded files as well, and as such it remains your right and responsibility to perform any kind of scanning you want yourself.

    Here is a copy of the most relevant line from our current terms:

    Company does not pre-screen forms or submissions and you agree that you are solely responsible for all of your Forms and User Submissions.

    Please let us know if you need any further clarifications or assistance.
