I believe I've created a contact form that will limit the amount of spam directed to the business. Now, I need to be sure that customer information is protected. I've read a couple of the threads here and am still a little confused. I want to be sure that potential customers who contact the business are sure that their information is being sent securely, or at least that it is not being sent "for all the world to see".
First question: Is the Personally Identifiable Information being transmitted by GF protected in any way? Meaning, is the system built to protect data or is it open for all the world to see and could someone tap into the form somehow and monitor submissions?
Second question: I have the SSL certificate and I have the backend of the site under https. I have read that if I modify the htaccess file I could somehow force the contact form to be https. How? Could someone provide sample code?
