I would say the website's form that collects data because the website should be SECURE and that way it is encrypted, but when it is sent through E-mail on outlook, you could have virus' and it is just not as safe at all.  There is options you could choose on Outlook, but I wouldn't recommend it. Thanks!

As long as the website is using SSL it would be the safest way to transfer data. However if it is just basic http, then you are wide open in either case.
