How Vault works

When collecting, storing, processing, or transmitting credit card data, you must follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or simply, PCI DSS. Many claim that they are PCI compliant, but they don't allow their forms to gather credit card information because they aren't certified — they just integrate with gateway processors for automated payments. Check how Vault is different by watching the video.

EmailMeForm is certified by TÜV Rheinland, fully compliant with PCI DSS, and powered by AWS and Cloudflare.

We're the only PCI certified
form solution

When collecting complete credit card numbers, CVV codes, and other sensitive data, EmailMeForm is the only form builder to use. Unlike other providers, we have achieved a Level 2 PCI Certification—a full-scale audit validated by TÜV Rheinland, the PCI SSC qualified security assessor. That means, we're certified to securely gather the credit card details and not just integrate with payment processors.

Vault FAQs

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or simply PCI is a set of strict rules and requirements for bodies that collect personal data and process payments online. These rules dictate how these sensitive data should be collected, stored, and transmitted on the Internet.

So if you're gathering credit card information from your clients and intend to charge their credit cards on their behalf, you will need to comply with PCI.

Yes, EmailMeForm is PCI certified. We have worked hard and sought the certification. We have been certified for Level 2 PCI Certification since October 2018. This means that we are a form builder that has passed stringent requirements set by the PCI Security Standard Council recognized worldwide. We have the systems, processes, and tools that let you collect, store, and process credit card information securely online.

Our Beginner Vault Plan starts at just $20 per month! Small team and agency plans are also available. Please sign up and contact us for detailed pricing.

The credit card information that you have collected will be stored in a secure cloud that is separate from our current database. The data will remain there until you delete it.

You can upgrade to a PCI compliance plan here.

Yes. We require that you refrain from using the number field or any other field other than our Vault-protected credit card field when collecting cc info. This puts your clients – and your business – at risk. Violation fines for businesses that collect credit card information but do not abide by PCI compliance can be up to $10,000 per month.

As a PCI certified form builder, it is only necessary that we enforce strict PCI compliant practice.

You should switch to the Vault credit card field as soon as possible. Please log in and reach out to us so we can immediately assist you in updating and migrating your forms to become PCI compliant.

Yes, of course. We have our CustomWorks specialists who can do the migration for you.

  • Strong Password. Before you enter your Vault-enabled account, you will be asked to choose a stronger password.
  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Second step is setting up MFA which requires you to use special codes when logging into your account. You will find step-by-step instructions on how to activate MFA on your next login.
  • Credit Card Field. You will find access to our certified PCI Vault credit card field inside the EmailMeForm form builder. Just drag it to your form and test the submission.
  • Secure Vault Storage. Once you start receiving credit card information from your forms, they will be stored in your secure Vault. You can retrieve it only from your account. The data will not be sent via submission notification emails.
