Electronic signatures are valid and enforceable with consent of all parties in most industrialized countries, however, laws vary and exceptions exist. Common exceptions include, but are not limited to, wills, power of attorneys, documents that need to be notarized, real estate transactions, and adoption papers.
Keep in mind that electronic signatures are not the same thing as digital signatures. Digital signatures are sometimes referred to as certified electronic signatures, advanced electronic signatures, etc. Some countries deem digital signatures admissible and valid for almost all types of agreements because digital signatures can verify identity of a person.
Eastern Engineering Group is not responsible for determining whether any particular legal instrument is (i) subject to an exception to applicable electronic signature laws; or (ii) whether it can be legally formed by electronic signatures. It is your responsibility to make sure that laws of the country which govern your legal instruments and agreements deem electronic signatures admissible, valid and enforceable.
