What Are e-signatures?

An electronic signature by definition, established in the US Federal ESIGN Act, is an "electronic sound, symbol, or process, attached to or logically associated with a contract or other record and executed or adopted by a person with the intent to sign the record." In essence, an electronic signature or e-signature is a person's agreement to the terms of a document expressed electronically instead of expressing physically with pen and paper. 📝
