    Hi Chris, thank you for reaching us.

    In the United States, the ESIGN Act states that electronic signatures are fully legal as long as all parties agree to use them. In addition to the ESIGN Act, the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act outlines state use of e-signatures. Similar legislation exists in the European Union.

    Despite existing legislation, 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.
