Our company is considering eSign Leases, are there any laws legally binding electronic signatures?
SiteLink Technical Support Answer
Yes, as we understand, electronic signatures are legally binding in the U.S. and many countries. Two compliance acts passed by congress, Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) and Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), establish that electronic records and signature have the same effect as paper and handwritten signatures.
