Did you know?
Your electronic signature is not visible in the same way as a handwritten signature!
This is because an electronic signature is an unique code generated from your document (this is called a “hash”). This code combines a series of characters from your document as well as your certificate data with the date and time of signing.
The signature is stored in your document and ensures that your document has not been changed after signing. If you add even a space in your document, the signature will no longer be valid!
Also, if sometimes you do not see the image of the signature, it does not mean that the document is not signed. To check this, you can open it in a tool as simple as Adobe Reader DC.
Frequently asked questions
What is a LuxTrust electronic signature?
An electronic signature is a legal concept established in the EU regulation 910/2015 (shortly, eIDAS). It enables people to sign, approve and agree electronically a given digital document. According to eIDAS, there are three levels of e-signatures (simple, advanced, qualified). To learn more, click here. If you are equipped with a LuxTrust electronic identity and device, then the signature you generate has the highest level (qualified) meaning that it has the legal equivalent of a handwritten signature.
What happens if I used my 5 free e-signatures?
You can connect to the service, but will not be able to sign. Your credit will be automatically renewed at the end of each month.
