What are electronic signatures?

Electronic signatures are a digital means to capture a person's agreement to the contents within a document.

They can range from typed names to an electronic image of a handwritten signature, and even to a unique digital code securely linked to a signer.

Unlike traditional, wet-ink signatures, electronic signatures utilize various technologies to ensure the signer's identity and consent to the document's terms, making them suitable for a wide range of legal and formal document transactions.
