We only use processes that provide a seamlessly verifiable means of capturing identity, intent, and consent, in a way that cannot be questioned or repudiated. The technology we deploy fully meets the requirements of the governing legislation of Ontario.

CONVENIENCE | LEGAL COMPLIANCE | NON-REPUDIATION

Our Electronic Video Signature Solution

Until recently businesses have been using electronic signature solutions designed for convenience, and not for legal compliance. Veritasa Law delivers both.

Our Electronic Video Signature Solution:

  • preserves biometric nature of signatures

  • captures legally compliant signatures

  • enables remote service for your convenience

  • provides enhanced security

  • maintains an audit trail

all in a way that cannot be questioned.

In today’s circumstances electronic signatures have become an important form of completing transactions in a world where remotely completing transactions is becoming commonplace.  However, as with everything, electronic signatures are open to scrutiny. When your most important documents are not signed in a seamlessly verifiable manner, they are easily repudiated.  Simplistic electronic signatures, or signing with avatars, do not provide the level of verification needed for our  important documents.

‘The process we deploy is the only process today that uses a seamlessly verifiable means of capturing identity, intent, and consent, in a way that cannot be questioned.’

Using our video signing room we enhance consumer protection and mitigate the risk of fraudulent behavior by preserving the biometric ink signatures while saving you time and money.

The process we deploy uses enhanced security in the electronic video signature process, which provides seamless verification and non-repudiation built into every step. With our ability to capture identity, and consent, our remote electronic video signature solution is fully compliant with remote swearing, commissioning and notarizing.

All you need in order to work with our solution is access to the internet through a web browser or mobile device. No downloads are required.

Convenience without Compromise.

With Veritasa Law you can conduct all your signing needs without compromising legal compliance requirements, or the value inherent in a handwritten signature to confirm consent.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an electronic signature?2021-01-13T08:16:51+00:00

In Ontario the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000 refers to “electronic signature”,  as an electronic information that a person creates or adopts in order to sign a document and that is in, attached to or associated with the document.

Are electronic signatures valid?2021-01-19T20:47:25+00:00

In Ontario since the passing of the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000 electronic signatures have been legally binding so long as they are done properly.  Speaking to a lawyer is an important step in evaluating if your electronic document signing solution is done properly.    When discussing with your lawyer, ask about repudiation of agreements, and if the document signing solution you are considering can validate intent, identity and consent with each signature.

Is a digital signature different than an electronic signature?2021-01-19T20:47:25+00:00

Often “Digital Signature” is used as a way of saying “Electronic Signature”.

With respect to signing your contracts, the proper term in legal circles, is “Electronic Signature”.

 

Why is nonrepudiation important?2021-01-19T20:47:25+00:00

When the authority, or legitimacy of your legal transaction is in question, it may allow stakeholders to repudiate it’s validity.   In case of a legal transaction this could mean bringing into question if the authorized signature is valid and thereby bringing the entire legal transaction into questions.   This could lead to unwanted scrutiny, and unwelcome added costs to defend your legal transaction.

It’s important to be able to employ the convenience of electronic signatures with the confidence of knowing that they will be held valid and legally binding if challenged.

 

What is a seamlessly verifiable transaction?2021-01-19T20:47:25+00:00

A seamlessly verifiable transaction means that the person is visible on video throughout the transaction.  There will be no break in the recording and you see the person as they are signing. All of this ensures that we can verify that the person in the video is signing.

Our audit trail proves the person’s identity, their precise location (required by law) their signature, their identification, consent and intent. Everything is authenticated.
