Contracts signed using Assently E-Sign have the same legal validity and enforceability as traditional contracts.
Our technology is fully compliant with EU and US e-signature legislative acts, which confirm the legality of electronic signatures. You can be confident when using Assently for your business agreements.
Assently E-Sign is compliant with:
- eIDAS, Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council
- US Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (E-SIGN Act)
- US Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA)
Assently E-Sign allows you to choose the best e-signature method for each situation. The strongest method of signing in the EU is electronic ID (eID), but its not the only method that is legally binding. In fact, it's important to know that agreements are valid regardless of form (with few exceptions) – be it an oral agreement, a traditional agreement on paper or a digital agreement. Sign using eID, two factor SMS or touch signature.
In the event of a legal dispute concerning an agreement, it can be very important to be able to prove what was signed, and under which circumstances a party entered into the agreement. The presenting of evidence in Sweden for instance is controlled by the principle of free production of evidence. This gives the parties in civil cases a right to refer to any evidence, without any requirements regarding its conception.

The information Assently E-Sign provides with each signed document gives you a strong evidentiary mode compared to the information available with a traditional signing of an agreement without witnesses.
