A standard eSignature can have a document signed with only two clicks and without any concrete process of identity verification or approval. It would be quite easy for the signer to deny signing it in this instance. A scanned signature or a rudimentary digital signature
is considered standard signatures under this definition.
The standard electronic signature procedure, on the other hand, can be enhanced and given more legal weight if an additional authentication step is added, such as Certinal's double authentication system, which uses an SMS code received by the signer.
Keeping an audit trail with standard electronic signatures isn't required, it's evident that doing so, as well as the cost and quality of the evidence gathered in this file, will provide a far higher level of credibility in the event the contract is ever questioned.
This audit trail file can contain information like the signer's email address, phone number, and the IP address of the device used to sign the document, among other things. The goal of this proof file is to allow lawyers to conveniently track the many phases of a transaction in detail.
