What are the electronic signature options with Sign.Plus?

We offer a versatile range of electronic signature options tailored to meet different security and legal requirements. Each type of signature offered by Sign.Plus is designed to cater to specific needs, ensuring that you have the right tools for secure and compliant document signing:

  1. Default Signature: Extremely Secure and Legally Binding in the US
    Our Default Signature offers a seamless and secure way to sign digital documents, ensuring utmost security with a tamper-proof solution and audit trail. It is legally binding in the U.S. making it perfect for both routine and sensitive documents where legal validity and enhanced security are essential. This option aligns with the Simple Electronic Signature (SES), which uses electronic data that the signatory employs to sign documents.

    Benefit: Default signature complies with the ESIGN Act, ensuring that each signature is legally recognized across the United States.

  2. Qualified Signature (QES) - eIDAS Identity Verification
    For those needing the highest level of security and legal assurance recognized across the European Union, our Qualified Electronic Signature (QES) under the eIDAS regulation is ideal. This signature type is recognized across the European Union as equivalent to a handwritten signature. It requires the signer to undergo identity verification through an online process, ensuring that the signature is uniquely linked to the signer and the integrity of the signed document is maintained. This option is suited for high-stake transactions and sensitive documents where legal compliance is critical.

    Benefit: Legal equivalence to a handwritten signature across the EU. Requires identity verification. Suitable for contracts, legal documents, and government transactions.

  3. Qualified Signature (QES) - ZertES Identity Verification
    Similar to the eIDAS QES, the ZertES-based Qualified Signature caters to users in Switzerland, offering the same high level of security and legal validity. It also requires online identity verification, ensuring that the signature is securely linked to the signer and recognized under Swiss law.

    Benefit: Swiss legal recognition is equivalent to a handwritten signature. Identity verification is required. Ideal for financial, legal, and governmental documents within Switzerland.
