An electronic signature or eSignature is a technology that allows a person to electronically affix a signature to an online document.

An electronic signature, or eSignature, is information in an electronic form, which is "associated with other data in electronic form and which is used by the signatory to sign" (eIDAS).

In simple terms, an electronic signature is the digital version of a paper-based method of signing signatures, on an electronic document. But beyond being just an image on a screen, they legally bind electronic documents, in just the same way as paper ones do.

Our platform complies with regulations set out by the eIDAS to ensure your documents are legally binding in any court. Here are some ways we have your back, legally.

When everyone's signed the document, you'll get a full copy of all signatures with a certificate showing you:

Each signing party

Dates, IP addresses, and fingerprints

A full audit log

The document is stored securely in your account for easy access, by just you, anytime. To ensure all your documents are secure & legally binding we provide:

eIDAS compliance & exceedance of UK eSign regulation

Detailed audit log stored for each signature action

Identification of users verified before permitted to send documents

Document integrity checked, always

Unique salted fingerprints for each document

Secure storage of documents and data

Signatory identity verified via email address, timestamps and geo-tracking

SSL 256-bit AES/RSA encryption

Only you and people you've authorised can access documents

Our eSignatures are 100% safe and secure, with SSLencryption on every page you visit on our website. So no one can snoop on your password or the documents you send & sign using our services.

Every action from the point of uploading is logged in a full audit trail that's attached to the corresponding envelope in your account. You'll be able to see right down to the minute when the signee has opened the document.

We offer you the choice of password protecting anything you send with us, and it's never, ever stored as plain text.

What's more, everything is stored securely in the cloud, so they're accessible only by you and users you've given permission.

Notice

The information you apply at notice covers both the notice period in the probation period if you have one and also the notice period outside of any probation period. So, if you want to have a 2 week notice within the probation period and one week after you would write something like “2 week notice during probation period, 1 week notice after probation period”

The party borrowing the money agrees to pay back the initial loan as well as any possible interest payments as agreed in the agreement. The loan is not secured against any collateral. By using the agreement clarity of the transaction is provided and can be referenced in the future.

Interest Amount

Under Interest Amount you should detail the interest amount to be paid on the loan. This can be a figure such as £100 or $500, or can be a percentage, such as 5% of total loan amount, or 5% of total loan per annum etc.

Also known as a Confidentiality Agreement is a agreement by two parties which describes confidential information which the parties wish to share, but restrict access to other parties. This may be "One Way" or "Mutual".

A "One Way" Non-Disclosure Agreement would be where only one party discloses confidential information, which should not be shared with other third parties unless otherwise agreed.

A "Mutual" Non-Disclosure Agreement also known as a or Two-Way Non-Disclosure Agreement would be where both parties share confidential information with each other which should not be shared with third parties unless otherwise agreed.


Purpose

Permitted purpose must be reasonably detailed so that someone not involved should sufficiently understand the permitted purpose. Permitted purpose may include why the disclosure needs to take place and what the parties will do with the information. Permitted Purpose could be short and simple, be clear enough to understand the goal, identify the Confidential Information specifically and clearly stating why the Business needs to deal with the counterparty. The detail may be broad enough to work for what the Business is trying to achieve currently and potentially in the future on the same topic, but should not be so broad as to allow the counterparty to request information out of scope If the disclosure is for a limited time, you may want to detail this in Permitted Purpose
