WebForm Signatures are able to be legally binding. Keep in mind this does require the signer has both 1) knowledge of information and 2) intent to sign.

WebForm signatures include a checkbox so that users must affirm the following: “I agree to electronically sign and to create a legally binding contract between the other party and myself, or the entity I am authorized to represent.”

All legally binding signatures must have 1) Consent 2) Intent 3) Association and 4) Record Retention.

GovOS Studio handles these with the following:

  • Consent: The user must check a box consenting they agree to sign electronically

  • Intent: The user must agree they had the intent to sign at the time of the transaction

  • Association: GovOS Studio associates the email used for signature with the form completed.

  • Record Retention: GovOS Studio both will retain a record of the signature, and allow a way for the signer to come back at a later time to view the record
