What makes an E-signature legal.
A technology must meet the following requirements from the definition of an electronic signature in section 1 of the ECT Act to qualify:
It must involve two sets of data:
- Those sets of data must be related to one another.
- The signatory must have intended the relationship between the sets of data to be their signature.
QuicklySign provides legally valid electronic signatures, because:
It takes one set of data in the form of the signatory's typed signature, drawn signature or initials and relates it to another by embedding it in a set of data in the form of a PDF
It also tracks the process from when you upload the document, the signatory signs the document, to when the signatory receives a copy of the signed document and gives you a process report that you can show to others. (which proves that the signatory intended their typed signature or initials embedded in the document to be their signature)
