About Electronic Signatures

What is an electronic signature?

According to the U.S. Federal ESIGN Act passed in 2000, and electronic signature is an “electronic sound, symbol, or process, attached to or logically associated with a contract or other record and executed or adopted by a person with the intent to sign the record.”

An electronic signature, or e-signature, is a person’s electronic indication of his or her agreement to the terms of a particular document.

Are electronic signatures legal?

Yes, Electronic signatures are legally binding in the United States and in many countries around the world. The U.S. Federal ESIGN Act of 2000 gives the same legal protection to online signing as to traditional pen-and-paper signing.

What are the benefits of electronic signatures?

There are many benefits to using electronic signatures. With YachtCloser’s electronic signature you can:

  1. Get contracts signed fast
  2. Sign documents from anywhere
  3. Documents are secure and legally binding
  4. Provide an audit trail to show “intent”

As you know, many boat brokerage documents are signed without your customer coming to the office. If this document is faxed or scanned to you, all you know if the date and time the document showed up on your fax or email. With YachtCloser’s electronic signatures, you’ll have an audit trail showing the signors name, email, and I.P. address, and when the document was sent, opened, and signed, including date and time, down to the second.
