Webform Private File Gateway provides umbrella functionality for controlling access to private files through the use of a webform. Users are forced to fill out a webform before they are granted access to the private file they are requesting. Developers can optionally specify whether or not to send an email the the user with a link to the file download and/or enable cookies for remembering the user.

The difference between this module and Webform Protected Downloads is that Webform Private File Gateway controls access to ALL private files whereas Webform Protected Downloads requires separate webforms to be created for different files.
