A clickwrap or click-through agreement is the fastest solution available to obtain enforceable electronic signatures for Contracts. Electronic signatures are perfectly valid and legally binding in most countries around the world according to Electronic signature law.
In the United States, there are a number of laws that make eSignatures legally binding:
- The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (E-SIGN) Act (15 U.S.C. §§7001-7031)
- The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) (7A Pt. 1 U.LA. 211, 211-99 (2002))
- Additionally many states have adopted some form of the UETA
A Signer must actually intend to sign a Contract in order for it to be binding. Clickable agreements make sure that binding documents are conspicuously presented alongside clear methods to sign the contracts online. There should be no doubt about the signers’ intent to sign.
