Escrito por: Patricia Nuño Fecha Friday 10, January 2020 Categoría: E-Signature

Daily, we use electronic signature in communications or transactions with third parties: privacy policy agreements, agreements with suppliers, employee contracts, purchase and sale contracts, etc.

There are several types of electronic signature on the market and they are included in the eIDAS Regulation. Depending on the technology available and the legal strength of the document required by the user, one or another level of signature will be chosen.

Types of electronic signature

There are applications that offer different types of signature that vary according to the technology incorporated and the electronic evidence collected from them.  Discover below the different types of electronic signature and their characteristics:

Simple signature

The signatory accepts or rejects the information received by responding to the dialog box that appears on the screen. This type of signature is found, above all, at the time of accepting the conditions of use or the privacy policy.

Advanced OTP (SMS) signature

With this type of electronic signature the signatory receives a code by SMS that he must enter at the time of signing. This will validate the transaction. It is common when we make an online purchase, for example, or in a bank transaction from our bank’s app.

Advanced biometric signature

This signature requires the physical presence of the signatory, since he must sign on a specific tool (usually a tablet). Data such as the pressure, inclination and position of the pen with which the user signs is collected. It is common to use this type of electronic signature in the banking and insurance sector, where transactions are usually closed in person.

Qualified signature

It is based on the signature with a qualified digital certificate issued by a Certification Authority. The security of this signature is based on the two keys that a certificate has: public and private key. This type of electronic signature should be used in transactions that require full legal support, being able to defend the evidence collected in case of litigation.
