The legal integrity of Signaturit´s advanced electronic signature

The integrity means that the electronic evidences generated during the signature process through Signaturit cannot be modified at a later date.

Electronic evidence is a set of the following data:

  • The signer´s name and email address.
  • A unique identifier given to the document automatically.
  • The IP address from the signer´s device at the moment of the signature.
  • The type of device.
  • The location and exact time of the signature.

All of this data is certified by the Official Time Stamping Authority, which acts as a trusted third party to assure all of the data, and that none has been altered starting from a specific point in time. The Time Stamping Authority guarantees the integrity of electronic evidences.  

The document certified by the Time Stamping Authority that contains all of the electronic evidences during the signature process is called the evidentiary document.

Signaturit´s advanced electronic signature solution meets the highest levels of legislation on data protection. Its processes meet the following regulations:

  • Directive 95/46/EC of the Parliament and the Board, October 24th 1995, regarding the protection of individuals, with regard to the treatment of personal data and the free circulation of it.  
  • The Law 15/1999, of December 13 regarding the protection of personal data.
  • The Royal Decree 1720/2007, of December 21, which approved the regulation of implementing the Law 15/1999 from December 13, the protection of personal data.

On the other hand, and unlike other electronic signature solutions, Signaturit does not store any signatures: they are “embedded” in the document to be signed during the signature process that happens with each transaction. This means that there is no record of individual signatures and the signature cannot be replicated in other documents or processes. This reinforces the company's security from any type of fraud or manipulation.
