A click-through agreement is the fastest solution available to obtain enforceable electronic signatures for Contracts. Electronic signatures, or eSignatures, are perfectly valid and legally binding in most countries around the world according to electronic signature law.
In the United States, a number of laws make eSignatures legally binding. The federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (E-SIGN) Act (15 U.S.C. §§7001-7031) is primary among them. In addition, the Uniform Law Commission (a non-profit association that researches and drafts legislation for individual states to adopt and stay consistent with each other) created the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) (7A Pt. 1 U.LA. 211, 211-99 (2002)), which has been adopted by many states.
A Signer must actually intend to sign a Contract in order for it to be binding. PactSafe's clickable Contracts make sure that binding documents conspicuously appear alongside clear methods to sign the Contracts online. There should be no doubt about the Signers’ intent to sign.
