Learn more about Swiftcourt's digital signing
What is it?
A digital signature is what you probably think it is. It’s a way of legally signing a contract from the comfort of your bed.
How does it work?
Don’t worry, it’s really easy. Once you’ve filled out all of the required fields in the contract you can sign at any time. First, you verify you phone number by entering a verification code that we will send to your phone via SMS. Second, you draw your signature with your finger or cursor. Et voilà! Contract: signed.
Is it valid?
Yes. Swiftcourt’s digital signatures have the same legal validity and enforceability as traditional paper contracts. When you sign a contract with Swiftcourt’s digital signature, several actions are taken to gather correct and relevant information about what was signed, and under which circumstances a party entered into the agreement.
So traditional paper contracts are equally valid? Why do I need Swiftcourt then?
We’re really glad you asked, here’s where it gets good: we will be your witnesses. The information we can provide as an independent third party gives you a strong evidentiary mode compared to the information available with a traditional signing of an agreement without witnesses.
Swiftcourt gives both parties access to a digital checksum, which stores information about your contract. This checksum can be used to prove that no one has altered the contract after the signature was made. If your counterpart edits information in the contract after you’ve signed, your signature is removed. That way, you can get a good night’s sleep knowing you’ve signed a contract with ensured validity.
