Sign documents digitally in a timely and legally secure manner from anywhere in the world – this is exactly what d.velop sign offers you.
The digital signature is formally an electronic signature – this is clearly regulated in Europe by the eIDAS regulation. The aim is to accelerate your business processes through the possibility of location and time-independent signatures, whereby you can reduce costs and invest more working time for other value-adding activities.
It is very simple – you upload your document to the d.velop sign app and a hash value is sent to a trust service provider for certification. This verifies your identity and then sends the hash value back to d.velop sign. Afterwards, you can download your signed document with the corresponding certificate. By simplifying the signature process in this way, you not only increase your level of digitisation, but also save important time and costs at the same time.
There are 3 types of electronic signatures and their legal effectiveness
The simple electronic signature
There are no special requirements for the simple electronic signature. Users can scan their signature and insert it into a document or sign an online form with two clicks. This does not require authentication with a trust service provider (VDA). However, this approach is vulnerable to forgery and fraud. Nevertheless, documents can be signed with legal effect using the simple electronic signature if only the text form is required.
The advanced electronic signature
The advanced electronic signature or advanced digital signature offers significantly greater legal certainty. For this, the user must authenticate himself with a VDA. The advanced electronic signature is also subject to the free judicial assessment of evidence (§ 286 ZPO) and ensures the integrity of the document by means of a certificate.
The qualified electronic signature
The third form of electronic signature is the qualified electronic signature (QES). If contracts require a handwritten signature, only this fulfils the requirements. In this case, the user must authenticate himself to the VDA via a 2FA procedure. According to the eIDAS Regulation, a document signed with a QES is just as legally binding in all EU member states as a document with a handwritten signature. Only the qualified electronic signature (QeS) replaces the legal written form (126, 126a BGB) and is therefore equivalent to the handwritten signature. This applies in particular to employment contracts.
