4.1 How it works
iLovePDF Signature permits documents to be signed by one’s self or one can request for signatures from other users by means of email delivery. Signers will have the ability to review the document before proceeding with the application of a signature.
The requester has the option to send a simple electronic signature request or can activate the certified signature option in order to place an EIDAS listed TimeStamp for added legal validity.
In addition to the final version of the document, we provide an Audit Trail that includes details gathered from the requester as well as the signers in order to provide greater transparency to the entire process.
All documents containing certified signatures are stored in iLovePDF’s servers for safekeeping for procurement purposes.
Please note that once the signature process is complete, it is you who have the sole authority to safeguard the document/s.
4.2 Legal Guarantees
iLovePDF strives to make sure that it’s services comply with the requirements of the U.S. Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000 (ESIGN), the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), and the European Union eIDAS (EU No.910/2014).
iLovePDF provides a detailed audit trail, certified signatures, timestamps, and signature biometric tracing which are held into account in legal proceedings around the world.
iLovePDF is at disposition to provide the certified document as well as audit trail if required by a court of law, yet exempts itself from prosecution if the document is not upheld or found lacking.
iLovePDF offers two different kinds of signatures: e-signatures and certified signatures. e-Signatures are free of use and may be subject to size or quantity limitations of processing (see pricing for more information). We offer a certain number of certified signatures at no extra cost for our Premium users each month and we also provide prepaid packs which can be purchased. Certificates sold in packs can be used on top of those obtained with your subscription or other packs you have previously purchased.
