E-Signatures and Legality:

What’s an e-signature?

An e-signature, or electronic signature, is “an electronic sound, symbol or process, attached to or logically associated with a contract or other record and executed or adopted by a person with the intent to sign the record,” as stated by the Federal (ESIGN) Act.

What are e-signatures used for?

E-signatures are used for many document transactions and document signing purposes, for both personal and business use. E-signatures can be used for contracts and agreement forms, loans and leases, court orders, school field trip slips, and many more, for example. SignNow’s e-signature can be used in all 50 states, as well as around the globe.

What’s the difference between an e-signature and a “digital” signature?

Electronic signatures are broad categories to describe the signing method or record of a document. A digital signature is a kind of e-signature that uses more specific technical methods, and many digital signature providers use the “Public Key Infrastructure,” or PKI, protocol.

Are e-signatures legal?

Yes, e-signatures are legally binding in the United States. The U.S. Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN, 2000), and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA, 1999), both establish this e-signature legality. ESIGN and UETA address that electronic records and signatures and traditional physical signatures carry equal weight. ESIGN and UETA also establish that a document or signature cannot be denied legal effect solely because it is an electronic signature.

What resources are available on ESIGN?

Please visit the official ESIGN form to gain historical information and resources on ESIGN.
