Uniform Electronic Transactions Act
What Is UETA?
The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) is a fundamental US law which ensures that your electronically executed contract is legally valid. It has been approved by 47 states and similar state legislation for the remaining three. The UETA and the ESIGN (Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce) ACT help ensure the validity of electronic contracts and the security of digitally created signatures, including those created on the SignNow platform.
Generally speaking, the UETA determines the legal side of digital handwriting in both commercial and governmental transactions and validates any signature you create with our platform regardless of the way it was generated.
This enables our users to create one hundred percent legal e-signatures for a range of document types. Users can certify their documents online or invite their business partners to sign them in a couple easy steps.
A client can create a unit that is unique to themselves as well as save and reuse it later. There are three options available:
- type in your name and select an automatically generated e-signature
- write a digital ink mark using your mouse or touchpad
- upload an existing one as a file
With SignNow, there is also the option of adding two-factor authentication to protect any document sent for signing. All files are kept on a secure cloud platform. Users who’ve worked with a document are able to view or download a copy of the final e-signed PDF by simply creating a personal account.
