The click-to-sign eSignature - a legally binding signature
PactSafe provides you with the fastest solution available to obtain binding electronic signatures for any contract. Electronic signatures are perfectly valid and legally binding in most countries around the world. In the United States, there are a number of laws that make eSignatures legally binding:
- The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (E-SIGN) Act (15 U.S.C. §§7001-7031)
- The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) (7A Pt. 1 U.LA. 211, 211-99 (2002))
- Additionally many states have adopted some form of the UETA
PactSafe's Signature Acceleration Platform has been designed with compliance of these laws in mind. Here are some of the things we do to make sure electronic signatures are legally binding.
We make sure signers know they are signing a legal document.
For an electronic signature to be binding, electronic signature law requires that a signer actually intend to sign a contract. Our electronic signature solution makes sure that contracts are conspicuously presented alongside clear methods to electronically sign the contracts. This leaves no doubt about the signers intent to sign.
We automate the required record keeping process.
As soon as a contract is electronically signed using PactSafe, we create a durable, electronic record of the process by which this electronic signature was created. That record also includes the contract, proof of any authentication measures, a basic signer digital thumbprint, and a time-stamped audit trail of all activity related to a contract and its signers.
We give you multiple ways to authenticate signers.
PactSafe gives you multiple signer authentication options so you always know, and can prove, who is signing your contracts. Signer authentication methods include email, secure links, unique signer codes, and multifactor authentication (e.g. codes sent via SMS).
We keep your contract records secure, accessible, and tamper proof.
All information transferred to and from PactSafe is 256-bit SSL encrypted, including usernames and passwords. Our electronic signature platform is designed to keep your contracts secure and prevent tampering of your contracts, your electronic signatures, and your electronic records. We create a unique record of every contract before any party electronically signs it, and of each revision. We then create another unique record of the contract and version associated with the electronic signatures. Additionally, we encrypt all of your static files and electronic signature information in Amazon's S3 servers, which are housed in an ISO 27001 certified data center.
