    Hello there too @frontiereconomicsrecrutiment - I'm citing a snippet from our article here:

    E-signatures are legally binding on almost all countries and states, but we still recommend consulting with your lawyer. JotForm records the IP address and time of the signature made so that also provides additional confirmation about the signer of the document.

    If our built-in signature widgets won't suffice, you also have the option to use well-known platforms like Docusign or Adobe Sign which are also legally binding outside the US.
