The right signature for your signature processes

Digital signatures require the highest level of trust and security. There are three recognised quality levels which indicate the extent of the evidential value of digitally executed signatures.

Simple electronic signature (SES)

A simple electronic signature (SES) has no probative value and can in no way replace a written signature. If both parties agree, this method can be a viable option. A common example of a simple signature is an uploaded photo or a scan of a signature placed on a document

Advanced Electronic Signature (AES)

Every signature made with our platform already achieves the high level of security guaranteed by the advanced electronic signature (AES). The signatory is additionally identified, e.g. with the help of the email address. Thus, this type of digital signature already has sufficient probative value for many applications.

Qualified Electronic Signature (QES)

According to the eIDAS regulation, the qualified digital signature (QES) is legally 100% equivalent to the handwritten signature and meets the very highest quality criteria. Therefore, only the qualified signature should be used for contracts with a writing form requirement and high demands on the evidential value and trust of all contracting parties. sproof has specialised specifically in this type of digital signature
