Credit Card App in PDF to Fill Online

Answered by: 

Question: 
Our credit card provider has a credit card application that is a pdf form. They want us to link it from our website and our customers would fill it out online and then print it out and mail it in to them. The website address for the form is not an https address, only http, which makes me not want my customer to fill it out online. Am I correct in this thinking?
Answer: 

Unless the credit card application form is pre-filled with personal information about the applicant, transmitting a form to a potential applicant does not create a security risk. If the completed application is never transmitted electronically from the applicant to the lender, but rather is printed on paper and sent through the U.S. mail, then "fill it out online" is a misnomer. In this case, there would be no security risk since the applicant's personal information never leaves his/her computer.
