    Legal validity and strength of the electronic authentication

    Evidos electronic signatures satisfy the most stringent international legal requirements. The signatures meet the requirements for advanced electronic signatures laid down in Section 3:15(a) of the Dutch Civil Code. In addition, Evidos ensures that the signatures you obtain from Ondertekenen.nl automatically have the right level of authentication. For every document signed, you will receive a receipt showing the audit trail of all the steps taken during the signing process. In addition, we sign documents using an independent timestamp.
