Extensive Identification control for Certificate & e-id
During the Easy signature certificate/e-id enrollment process you will be asked to provide necessary information to enable the issuance of the certificate.
The applicant / certificate owners identity (SIR) is checked and is registered in our Database to prevent fraud and illegal use.
This requires e.g. the presentation of the following documents to Easy Signature:
As soon as we have received and successfully verified the necessary documents that we need to issue the certificate
US UETA, E-Sign Act and EU Digital Signature Directive states that electronic signatures are legally binding; however there is very little case law.
The legal framework needs to be reviewed on a case by case basis and independent legal advice may need to be sought to ensure compliance with differing
international laws. At present the use of digital signatures is based on agreement between the communicating parties.
Therefore we recommend to our customer either use it for internal processes only or issue a legal binding document that states that all document
signed by a valid e-signature is here by legally binding.
Please observe the relevant laws and regulations for the specific field before using e-signatures.
(e.g. In Sweden electronic signatures are not approved for testament (or will), purchasing Real Estate, Property and Land. Special Qualified signatures are permitted for electronic invoicing.)
