Which Of These Can Be A Valid Contract Agreement Under Esign
UETA has been adopted by 48 US states. While Illinois and New York have not adopted UETA, they have introduced similar statutes for the validation of electronic signatures. As with traditional wet signatures, electronic signatures are only valid if a user demonstrates a clear intention to sign. For example, SignEasy allows users to disable the electronic signature of a document by providing the option to refuse signature requirements. There is no truly correct or false way to collect an electronic signature as long as the basic elements, which include a valid contract and acceptance of that contract, are completed. Under the ESIGN Act, the term electronic signature means “a sound, symbol or process that is attached to or is logically associated with a contract or other data set and is executed or accepted by a person with the intention of signing the protocol.” Since this case, there has been significant case law and the adoption of the ESIGN Act and the uniform electronic transactions act (“UETA”). These laws have helped to clarify that an email or a number of emails may meet signed writing requirements. In particular, under UETA, click-wrap agreements and e-mail exchanges can cover transactions requiring written signed under the current Fraud Act. An electronic signature (as defined in the law) fulfills all laws that require a written signature. UETA defines “electronic signature” as “sound, symbol or electronic process related to a recording and executed or accepted by a person intending to sign the recording.” The definition of the electronic signature includes the “click-through by default of the website” process. This means that the customer, when he passes the entire process of ordering goods on the Internet and then clicks a “I vote” button or a similar button, has adopted the “process” by law, then indicates his intention to receive goods and is asked to pay for it. Once the customer has completed the process by clicking on a “I agree” or similar button, the customer is legally required to pay for these goods (or services). The client presented an electronic signature that is part of the UETA.
