It depends how important and sensitive your data which is to be inserted by users.

If it is not so important, you can use simple asp.net way to insert into database.

see:

If you want to pass this data to somewhere else (through network) then it is ok to have this data into XML and pass this XML file. (which is more secured).

Here are some references:

Hope this clears you.
