Electronic Signature FAQs
Here is a list of the most common customer questions. If you can’t find an answer to your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
What is an electronic signature?An eSignature is a handwritten autograph of a person made with the help of appropriate software from various devices: desktops, tablets or smartphones. They’re used to confirm the integrity and authenticity of a signed document in its electronic form. E-signatures are advantageous features for certifying documents online with a single click. And they help companies to conclude transactions, manage relevant records quickly and significantly save time and reduce expenses. Check it out, and keep up the great work!
Is a digital signature the same as an electronic signature?In general, a digital signature is a reliable way to implement an electronic signature when the signatory is verified by obtaining a certificate of authentication based on Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) protocol from a government-authorized Certifying Authority (CA). In the case of esignatures, the authenticity of the signer is not required to be certified.
Are signNow's electronic signatures legally binding?Be sure that they are totally legally-valid and can even serve as evidence during disputes and in court. Certifying papers electronically was first legally seen as the equivalent of a written by hand signature in the U.S. eSignature Act of 2000 (U.S. Federal Act) and the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA). Additionally, corresponding laws in many other countries have followed this example. signNow works according to these laws and is considered to be a certified and trusted software provider.
