Legally sign documents without leaving Gmail

HelloSign for Gmail  is a simple and convenient Chrome plug-in to sign the documents incoming to your Gmail. Before, you had to print the document, sign it, and then scan. Now everything is much easier: just click the Sign button, which is displayed now.  

In a matter of seconds you can paste the image into the document.  Actually, handwritten signature has become out of date these days, which doesn’t give you security. But with this new feature you at least save your time.

You can upload your signature to the HelloSign server right after you have installed plug-in and signed in. Service offers the instructions – you can sign using your mouse or upload as an image. HelloSign supports: doc, docx, pdf, tif, tiff, ppsx, ppt, pptx, tif, tiff, jpg, jpeg, png, xls, xlsx, txt, and gif file formats.

Such signature is considered to be legal, if you made it yourself. HelloSign guarantees genuineness of the signature and protects it from forgery, as the server uses 256 bit SSL encryption. Moreover, the company audits and keeps logins of all the signature requests. In other words, the service ensures the facsimile belongs to the owner of the particular email address.

Laws that regulate electronic signatures:

USA
2000 U.S. Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN)
Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA)

European Union
European Directive (EC/1999/93)

By the way, Paul Buchheit  – the author and developer of the Gmail – took part in HelloSign creation. He made investments in the development of this free service, so we might expect some paid options of this service in the future.
