An electronic signature is used to sign contracts, invoices, submissions, letters, or other documents. It is especially useful at times when you are short of time or the signatories are located too far from one another.
An electronic signature can, for example, be used to apply to study at university and to implement the entire process of buying immovable property, including ratifying corroboration requests in the Land Register. An electronically signed document has the same legal power as a signature written on paper. Each copy of it is original and its contents cannot be changed. An electronic signature in a document not only certifies the signatory’s identity but also confers a time stamp.
When it comes to using an electronic signature, the greatest risk is posed by careless storage of its access codes. It is strictly prohibited to entrust these to another person. Therefore access to your devise should be protected with a PIN code or biometric data.
