Data Protection, Security and Privacy


Try now for free!


More and more countries are tightening their privacy policy, especially with regard to which data may be transmitted abroad. Furthermore, of course, no third party should have access to the data entered in the form. This is particularly problematic if you use a form service provider who hosts the form on his server and also handles the data processing and data transfer.




If you use the Arclab Web Form Builder you can avoid these problems as the form and the processing of the data (for example sending by email) takes place via your own website (your web server). In this way, you can ensure that no third party can access the form data.


How does it work?


check  Create the form on your own computer (Windows PC).

check  Upload the php script generated by the program to your own website (web server).

check  The uploaded php script creates the form and handles the processing.

check  The form data can be transmitted by email or written to a MySQL database.

check  No external form hosting.

Arclab Web Form Builder contains a variety of form elements:

Encryption (SSL)


In order to secure the data transfer from the server to the user, you need an SSL certificate which has to be set up on the server. This can usually be done easily via the web configuration of your web server. In the program itself, no setting is necessary, the SSL encryption of the form page is done directly by your web server. All you have to do is upload the form to a web server accessed via "https://" and not "http://".


If you would like to submit the form data by email, this should be done best to a local email address. "Local email address" means an email address belonging to the server or to the domain of your website. This ensures that the data does not leave your server (or hosting provider) and the data it is not transmitted unencrypted over the Internet. In order to maintain the encryption chain you should make sure that you also access the email account in encrypted form with your email program. Most email accounts support SSL or TLS encryption for this purpose.
