What is the procedure to use one of your forms on my own website and make it secure?

1. Login
2. Click 'Form Security / Anti-SPAM'
3. Enable SSL for the form

Once you have done this, you need to upload the form to an SSL protected directory on your web server. The address will need to start with https://

Please note per the Terms of Service that it is prohibited to send sensitive data such as credit cards, social security numbers, etc. via our forms. This is due to the fact that while the data is encrypted from browser to our server, once it is sent in email it is unencrypted (all email is). This creates a security flaw and is the reason that email in general should never be used to send sensitive data.

Sending information that we consider sensitive will result in account suspension.

I subscribe to cryptoheaven.com secure email service to secure the data to my email account.

Will this work?

http://www.cryptoheaven.com/secure-web-forms/secure-SSL-web-forms.htm

<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="http://www.yourserver.com/form.htm">

Replace this entire tag with this one:

<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="https://www.cryptoheaven.com/ch/web-form.jsp" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data">

Add this line between the <FORM> and </FORM> tags. Replace the 2500000 number with your CryptoHeaven numeric ID.

<INPUT TYPE="hidden" name="CH_uId" value="2500000">

Optional parameters:

<input type="hidden" name="CH_successPage" value="http://www.yourserver.com/success">
<input type="hidden" name="CH_errorPage" value="http://www.yourserver.com/error">

<input type="hidden" name="CH_fromName" value="CryptoHeaven Secure Form">
<input type="hidden" name="CH_fromEmail" value="forms@cryptoheaven.com">
<input type="hidden" name="CH_subject" value="CryptoHeaven Secure Form">

I cannot comment on whether the other specialized service would work. Unfortunately, I don't know; although I have yet to find / see anyone recommend ever sending credit card information over email. This is generally considered a bad idea by most developers.
