Each user must provide a valid email address and any other information requested in order to fully complete the signup process and create a login. You may only create a separate login for as many Users as your current Jotform Plan allows. The sharing of your Jotform Account login credentials is strictly prohibited.

As between Jotform and you, you own all rights to your Forms and Submissions. When you make a Form, Submissions page, or Report “public”, you grant Jotform a worldwide and fully sublicensable license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform, and publicly display your Forms and Submissions (in whole or in part) in any format or medium now known or later developed. Submissions and Reports will only be made public with your permission. Forms are public by default but of course, if you choose the private setting for your forms, they won’t be made public. Jotform does not pre-screen forms or submissions and you agree that you are solely responsible for all of your Forms and User Submissions.
5. Payments, Renewals, Credit Card Details, Downgrades, Refunds
Payments. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, except for sales taxes as we may be required to add under local law. You shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, and duties, including any sale or value-added taxes and similar taxes and duties imposed by any governing authority in any jurisdiction in connection with your use of the Jotform Services.
Automatic Renewal. Paid accounts are subscriptions. This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis. Your Jotform subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle until you cancel your Jotform subscription by selecting the starter plan on the billing page. You can also cancel your Jotform subscription by submitting a request to the Jotform Support Team. If you downgrade, your account will remain at your current plan through the end of your current billing cycle.
Credit card details. If you have elected to pay the fees for a Jotform subscription by credit card, you warrant that the credit card information you provide is correct and that you will promptly notify us of any changes to such credit card information. You agree that if your credit card payment cannot be processed for any reason, Jotform may suspend or cancel your Jotform subscription.
Downgrades. Downgrading your Jotform account plan may cause the loss of features or capacity of your account. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Jotform does not accept any liability for such losses. Downgrading your subscription will not cause you to lose your forms or your data.
Cancellation. Paid plans are subscriptions that auto-renew by default. You can cancel auto-renew at any time to cancel your subscription. To cancel your Jotform subscription at any time, go to the Billing section of your account, and downgrade your account to the free Starter plan. If you’re logged into your account, you can simply click Downgrade below the Starter option on the pricing page. You can delete your account entirely by clicking Delete My Account on your Account Settings page. Canceling auto-renew prevents your payment method from being charged at your next billing date, or if you pay by invoice, prevents your next invoice from being issued. Your current subscription (the time you already paid for) isn’t affected, so you’ll continue to be able to access and benefit from paid features until the plan downgrades on your next billing date.
30 Day Money Back Policy. If for any reason you decide to cancel your account within 30 days of your payment, you will be issued a refund for the full amount. If you purchased your Jotform subscription through the Jotform website or Google Play, please submit a refund request to the Jotform Support Team.
Subscriptions purchased via the Apple App Store are subject to the Apple App Store refund policies – Jotform cannot refund your payment(s) to Apple. To request a refund, please review Apple’s refund process: https://support.apple.com/HT204084.
