Qualified documents signed with itsme® and e-Signature.eu
Small businesses, freelancers and private individuals all like to simplify their administration. But signing certain documents or agreements often still involves a whole flow of paper. Printing these documents, adding signatures and scanning them again means a lot of work and the signature also loses its value. Since 2020, the www.e-Signature.eu platform has provided an easy solution for signing documents in a legally binding way, even if you only have to sign things a few times a year. And itsme® is ranked nº 1 when it comes to signing with e-Signature.eu: currently, 62% of all documents on the platform are signed with itsme®.
Thanks to the services of the Doccle administration platform e-Signature.eu has been providing qualified electronic signatures since 2020. You can sign documents via the e-Signature.eu-platform with itsme® Sign or with your eID.
itsme® Sign: qualified signatures
Unlike a signature on paper, there are many ways to sign online and there are also significant differences in the security level and legal value of these signatures. The European eIDAS* regulation defines three types of electronic signature: the ordinary electronic signature, the advanced electronic signature and the qualified electronic signature.
The qualified signature offers the advantage that the identity of the signatory is linked to the signature through a personal, qualified certificate from the qualified trust service provider. A signature placed with itsme® is a qualified electronic signature that is recognised by eIDAS and all EU member states. This means that the itsme® Sign signature has the same legal value as its handwritten equivalent and is protected against forgery and counterfeiting
