If your form is setup as a web page on your site or created using FormBuilder:
Note that this process is always the same regardless of where your web site is hosted. Also, unless your web form is misconfigured, the visitor will never be redirected from your web site and will always see your URLs in the address bar. With web site forms, the submission process to LuxSci's servers is always fully transparent to the user.
If your form is in a PDF, the process is similar:
Where would you like your data to be saved or sent?
|Database. Instead of a file, have your data uploaded directly to a MySQL database. Access that data online through our reporting tools.|
|Document Storage. Store your file in LuxSci Documents, part of our WebAidesTM collaboration suite.|
|Email. Send the form data and files to you via regular or secure email. Send to any email address/multiple email addresses.|
|FTP/SFTP Server. Have your data uploaded to any web server via FTP or SFTP.|
|Notice. Send a simple post notification via Email, SMS/text message, SecureChat.|
|SecureChat/Mediprocity. Send the form data and files directly to your mobile device or desktop using Mediprocity SecureChat service.|
|Dropbox. Send form data and files to your Dropbox account.|
|Slack. Send a custom data-laden message to any Slack channel.|
|Webhook. Send a to any third-party service that supports inbound JSON or URL-encoded Webhooks.|
What formats would you like your saved/sent data in? Some Integrations (e.g. WebHook) come with their own special data format customization options.
|Plain text. Receive your data as a raw text file.|
|Tabular HTML. A nicely formatted, two-column HTML view of the form fields and data.|
|XML Simple, automatically-created XML document.|
|PDF. Receive your data as a complete FDF or PDF file, or as a refilled PDF template file.|
|Text/HTML Template. Receive your data as a refilled template file in text, HTML, XML, or any other text-based file format.|
|CSV. Receive your data as a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file to be viewed in programs such as Microsoft Excel.|
Custom solutions can be tailored for very high numbers of forms or capacity, very high security, and business continuity. They can include:

Yes. SecureForm integrates with any web or PDF form hosted anywhere. A few minutes is all that it takes to update an existing form to send its data to SecureForm for processing and delivery or storage.
No. You can keep your web site where it is and either integrate its existing forms with SecureForm, or link your site to forms saved in SecureForm FormBuilder.
SecureForm will transmit or save your form data in any combination of formats: plain text, two-column HTML, CSV (Excel), XML, refilled custom templates (HTML, XML, or other), and re-filled PDF templates (even with the data from web form submissions).
SecureForm can transmit or save your form data to many different locations (Integrations). See: "How SecureForm Works".
We do not make your forms. You or your web designer can modify your existing forms, make new forms hosted elsewhere, or use SecureForm visual form builder to make and host new forms. We do provide custom consulting services for form design. This is $250/hour.
You don't need programming skills when using the SecureForm visual form builder or PDF forms. When designing or updating your existing/external web forms, you or your web designer will have to edit a couple of lines of HTML code to direct the form submissions to SecureForm; if a content management system such as Gravity Forms for Wordpress generates or dynamically manages your forms, then you may need a little coding to integrate SecureForm.
Pricing is based on the number of forms and number of submissions per day. See the Compare Plans. The tiers are:
For larger limits, please contact sales.
When using SecureForm, data transmits from the end-user's browser (or PDF) to LuxSci, encrypted using strong TLS ciphers. Once it arrives, what happens next depends on the integrations you configure; the security of the results is then, to a certain degree, your choice. For example:
You do not need your own TLS certificate to use SecureForm; however, if you are hosting your forms on your own website, we do recommend that you secure that site with TLS to protect your form pages themselves from alteration/hacking before getting to your end users.
SecureForm includes detailed reports of all successful form posts, and of many kinds of post failures (including emailed alerts of important types of failures). If saving your data to a hosted database, SecureForm provides an audit trail of views and deletions (if such are permitted) of all rows of posted data accessed via our API or or Web-based Form Database viewer.
Yes. Users of your web-based forms can sign a written signature using their mouse, stylus, or finger, and it's possible to capture and deliver that signature along with your form post. The post can even auto-append to refilled PDF templates or inserted inline in refilled HTML templates. See Ink Signatures.
Yes. SecureForm has an API that allows listing, downloading, and optional deletion of SecureForm data stored to a hosted database.

When operating your website or database, you need to ensure that all sensitive client or patient information is secure and protected from unapproved eyes. This means using secure web forms. Unsecured forms and legal documents can provide easy access for hackers to infiltrate and collect confidential information, which is why LuxSci developed a secure web form solution. LuxSci's SecureForm processing allows you to add and store HIPAA- (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant patient forms, tax documents, legal forms, etc., in order to ensure your online services stay protected and legal.
SecureForm seamlessly integrates with any of your company's current web or PDF forms. SecureForm is compatible with any CMS (including WordPress), as well as custom-coded pages made using PHP, .NET, and any other language. You can save your data in multiple formats: plain text, two-column html, CSV (Excel), XML, refilled custom templates (HTML, XML, or other), and refilled PDF templates (even with data from Web forms). Our SecureForm FormBuilder allows you to use our web interface to configure and customize your own forms without any coding knowledge. SecureForm ensures that your data remains protected during transmission, using TLS encryption, and at rest, using PGP and/or AES encryption. Note: if you are a LuxSci HIPAA customer, SecureForm automatically configures for your compliance.
One of our exciting HIPAA-compliant SecureForm features is Ink Signatures. LuxSci's Ink Signatures are simple web-based agreement boxes that allow you to easily capture the authentic handwritten signatures of anyone filling out a SecureForm-enabled web form. There's no special software or technical knowledge required; you can sign with a mouse, a stylus, or a touchscreen. This user-friendly feature provides an easy way to establish signed agreements and is much easier to implement than standard digital signatures.
