The E-SIGN Act Provisions
The Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce or E-SIGN ACT (Pub.L. 106-229, 14 Stat. 464, enacted June 30, 2000, 15 U.S.C. Chapter 96) is a United States federal law passed by the U.S. Congress to facilitate the use of electronic records and signatures in interstate and foreign commerce by ensuring the validity and legal effect of contracts entered into electronically.
The general intent of the E-SIGN Act is spelled out in section 101(a), that a contract or signature "may not be denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form". This statement provides that electronic signatures and records are just as good as their paper equivalents, and, therefore, subject to the same legal scrutiny of authenticity that applies to paper documents.
Section 101(b) of the E-SIGN Act preserves the rights of individuals to NOT USE electronic signatures. The law provides that individuals reserve the right to sign their name on paper. Section 101(c) of the E-SIGN Act requires a disclosure that the signatory has consented to use an electronic format.
BY CREATING AN ELECTRONIC ACCOUNT AT OUR SITES, OR BY SUBMITTING AN ONLINE APPLICATION FOR SERVICES, YOU AGREE THAT AN ELECTRONIC FACSIMILE OF YOUR SIGNATURE OR ELECTRONICALLY SIGNED AGREEMENT CARRIES THE FULL LEGAL WEIGHT OF A WRITTEN SIGNATURE
