DocuSeal Compliance

Ensuring the utmost security, transparency, and compliance in the digital document realm. Discover how DocuSeal adheres to GDPR, eIDAS, UETA, and the ESIGN Act.



What is UETA and the ESIGN Act?

The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) and the Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN Act) are pivotal U.S. laws that establish the legal validity of electronic signatures and records. Both statutes ensure that electronic documents and signatures are as legally binding as their traditional counterparts.

  • Legal Validity: Electronic signatures and records are considered legally valid and have the same legal status as handwritten signatures and paper documents, ensuring that contracts and agreements formed electronically are enforceable.
  • Electronic Records: Electronic records are deemed to be in writing and are legally recognized, satisfying the requirement for a written document.
  • Consumer Consent: Parties involved in electronic transactions must consent to conduct the transaction electronically. However, consent cannot be denied solely on the grounds that it is in electronic form.
  • Record Retention: UETA establishes guidelines for the retention of electronic records to ensure that they remain accessible and accurate for future reference.

What is eIDAS?

The Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services (eIDAS) regulation is an EU initiative that standardizes electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions. It ensures that electronic interactions between businesses, citizens, and public authorities are secure, seamless, and have legal standing.

  • Electronic Signatures: eIDAS defines three types of electronic signatures: simple, advanced, and qualified electronic signatures. These signatures have varying levels of security and legal validity, allowing users to choose the appropriate type based on the context and requirements of the transaction.
  • Record Retention: Businesses must provide consumers with the option to receive electronic records in a format that is accessible and can be retained for future reference. Additionally, businesses are required to maintain accurate records of electronic transactions.
