How do I know a document has been legally signed? Is there a certificate?
When an envelope has been signed and submitted, the sender will receive a confirmation email with the completed document attached as a PDF, including a certificate of signature.
The certificate of signature is located on the last page of the document and contains detailed information on:
- Each signing party
- Dates, times, IP addresses and fingerprints
- Full audit log
This certificate forms part of the legal evidence to prove that the document has been signed in the correct way. Everyone involved in the signing process receives this, automatically, once the document has been completed, signed and submitted. The certificate will always remain part of the completed document as it is a legal requirement.
