So, what are eSignatures?

What’s the difference between Micheal Jordan’s scribble on trainers and a Signable signed contract? Let’s explain.

eSignature [ee-sig-nuh-cher]  n.  A technology that allows a person to electronically affix a signature to an online contract.

An electronic signature, or eSignature, is information in an electronic form, which is “associated with other data in electronic form and which is used by the signatory to sign” (eIDAS). In simple terms, an electronic signature is the digital version of a paper-based method of signing signatures, on an electronic document. But beyond being just a squiggle on a screen, an eSignature legally binds an electronic document, in just the same way as paper ones do.
