If possible, please use e-signing tools that verify your e-signature’s authenticity eg by the signature creation software applying a unique code that is verifiable by an online verification tool.
6. E-Sign Stamps
If possible, please use e-signing tools that place a date and time stamp on the signature when creating the signature.
If you alter the document or information after it has been signed by you or someone else, the change must be detectable and sent back to the person who already signed for counter-signing.
8. Witness signatures to electronic signatures (eg for guarantees)
The above requirements also apply to anybody signing a document as a witness.
