Submission data is transferred and stored in a secure format and no one else can read it. Submissions are encrypted with high-grade RSA 2048 right at user's computer then transferred and stored securely.

For encryption of form submissions, we and our vendors and partners use 2048 Bit RSA Keys. The forms are also PCI DSS Service Provider Level I Compliant.
Files are stored on secure servers and further protected under a randomized hexadecimal naming and storage strategy and also further secured by 256 Bit SSL.
Submissions are compliant with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which protects California residents by requiring businesses to handle their online and offline data in a responsible manner.
