    Tip: to quickly reorder a long form that has lots of questions:

  7. Privacy notices are positioned above the submission button at the bottom of the form by default. Select the pencil button and enter your text, or choose an option from the Sample notice drop-down list.

    Note: the privacy notice should inform visitors why you are collecting the data, what you intend to do with the data and how long you will keep the data.

  8. When you have finished editing the form, select Done.
  9. To control notifications of submissions, email receipts, when the form is open, and so on, you now need to specify the form properties.
