General Questions about Documill e-Signature

Q1: Is Documill E-sign secure for electronic signatures?

A1: Absolutely. Documill E-sign prioritizes security, utilizing Advanced Electronic Signatures that include unique identifying information. This ensures the authenticity of signatories and meets the minimum legal requirements for e-signatures in the EU (eIDAS Advanced electronic signature standard by the EU).
The Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services is an EU regulation that oversees
electronic identification and trust services within the EU. While e-signatures are broadly adopted
and accepted as legal outside the EU, eIDAS compliant electronic identification is strictly regulated
and legally binding in all EU member states.

Q2: How does Documill E-sign guarantee the security of electronic signatures?

A2: When a document gets signed, a certificate that proves that Documill is a trusted service provider
will get verified through a chain of trust. This is a 3rd-party process that must be used by any
signature service that wants to be credible. To make this all work, Documill uses the cryptographic infrastructure of one of the biggest and most trusted providers of digital signatures, GlobalSign. If you have used a reputable signature solution before, odds are that they too relied on GlobalSign.

Q3: Does Documill integrate with other e-signature providers?

A3: Yes, Documill seamlessly integrates with industry-leading e-signature providers. Check our Additional Integrations page for more information on these collaborations.

Q4: How can I ensure the confidentiality of my documents during the e-signature process?

A4: Documill E-sign prioritizes document confidentiality, however, responsibility for sharing the document with the correct signer relies on the document author.

Q5: How can signed documents be validated?

A5: Whenever a quality PDF reader opens a signed document, it checks for the validity of the signatures.
A valid document will have a tamper-evident seal; proof that the document has not been modified
after the seal was added. If a party tries to alter the signed document without consent, the seal will
break and the document will automatically be invalidated. For those interested, the PDF reader can
also display details such as which prior versions of the document existed and which public chain of
trust was followed.
