How does an electronic signature work?

eSignatures are legally binding

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

An advanced electronic signature based on a qualified documentary evidence hold the same legal status to wet signatures.

Binding electronic signatures on documentation

Our esignatures are advanced electronic signatures since they:

• Are uniquely and clearly linked to its signer

• Are created by means under the sole control of the signer, such as his or her telephone or personal computer

• Have a way to prove that the document has not been edited after it was signed
