The legal aspects of electronic signatures

Electronic Signatures are 100% legally binding e-signatures built with industry standards.

GetAccept provides you with a legal binding eSignature solution for your agreements and contracts. GetAccept complies with the requirements of the U.S. Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000 (ESIGN), the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), and the European Union eIDAS (EU No.910/2014) regarding electronic signatures and transmissions, which makes eSignatures fast, easy, and legally binding.

 

E-signature Law in the United States

GetAccept’s electronic signature solution in the United States complies with the definition of an electronic signature under the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (ESIGN) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA).

 

E-signature Law in the United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, the equivalent legislation to the ESIGN Act in the United States is the Electronic Communications Act 2000. GetAccept maintains that it’s electronic signature solution complies with the definition of an electronic signature under this act.

 

European Union (EU)

In 2014, the European Parliament repealed the eSignature Directive (1999/93/EC) with the goal of creating a more uniform market for electronic transactions. The replacement was the EU Regulation No 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market, also known as eIDAS. Electronic signatures are actively being used in Europe, and GetAccept’s eSignatures are compliant with eIDAS and EU electronic signature technical standards.

 

Signature authentication

GetAccept authenticates document signers so there is 100% transparency as to who is signing your documents. To protect all GetAccept user accounts, user information is transferred over 256-bit SSL encryption, including sensitive information like usernames and passwords. GetAccept also prevents others from accessing or using your account by imposing automated session time-outs and emailing you every time a contract is sent to, received by, or signed using an account.

 

Signature affixation

Each signature on a contract is imposed and affixed to the contract. GetAccept creates a comprehensive transaction trail between signing parties. To provide transaction history, we track and timestamp various information from the moment the document is submitted for signature to when it is completely signed and secured.

 

Full evidence log

A complete evidence log is a crucial factor to confirm when choosing an eSignature provider. Every send-out has a unique ID that reflects the contents of the document. GetAccept tracks the entire process and compiles it into a complete history of every action taken inside the document. Activities are marked with a trusted timestamp, email, IP number, and IP location.

 

Court-admissible transactions log 

GetAccept creates a comprehensive transaction trail between signing parties. In order to provide this transaction history, we track and timestamp various information from the moment the document is submitted for signature to when it is completely signed and secured, such as IP information and UserAgent information. To ensure against any tampering of your transaction log, the transactions log is secured with hashing technology. This audit trail gives you a full evidence log to bring to court should any conflicts arise.
