Electronic signatures across all the EU are governed by the Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services (eIDAS) Regulation, a set of standards for electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions. eIDAS defines 3 levels of eSignatures, simple electronic signature, advanced and qualified.

    An advanced eSignature based on a qualified certificate satisfies the legal requirements of a signature the same way as an on-paper handwritten signature.

    Our eSignatures are advanced electronic signatures since they are:

    • uniquely linked to and capable of identifying the signatory;
    • created in a way that allows the signatory to retain control;
    • linked to the document in a way that any subsequent change of the data is detectable.
  • Can I access the documentary evidence of my eSignature processes?

    Yes, we issue a documentary evidence with all the data involved in the communication; which can be viewed and downloaded from your account.

    It is a PDF document with all the details of the signature process including:

    • Data related to Registered Emails and Registered SMS-s sent and received such as: content, email addresses, mobile numbers, IPs involved, dates and times of the written communications
    • The signed documents
    • Technical annexes
    • OTP, click-to-sign or handwritten signature used to sign
    • Attachments

    The documentary evidence is digitally signed, and time stamped by a certificate authority. Thus, content remains tamper-proof.

Security & privacy

  • Are eSignatures secure?

    Not all eSignatures are created equally. Some eSignature services do not have a digital certificate, which means these documents can be tampered at any point with a simple software. Therefore, they have no legal value.

    Click & Sign provides digitally signed, timestamped (tamper proofing) documentary evidence. The signature is uniquely linked to the signer and the documentary evidence provides additional information on the signature (time, email, phone number, address, geolocation, …). You can click on the signature to validate it.

    These features make our eSignatures actually safer than ink signatures.

  • How do I know who signed the contract?

    The evidence to identify the signatory is provided by the Registered Email sent with the URL of the signature page, the OTP sent to a mobile number, the attachments, all the technical information related to the process such as the IP of the servers.

  • How can I access the documents once they are signed?

    The signed documents are available from Click & Sign user interface and, they can be downloaded as required. You can also set up documents to be sent automatically.
