Rocket Lawyer offers an electronic signature service (“RocketSign Service”), which enables users to conveniently create, send and receive valid electronic signatures using a computer, tablet or mobile phone. The RocketSign Service enables users to sign documents under the 2000 U.S. Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) as adopted by individual states.
If you use the RocketSign Service, you acknowledge and agree that (1) you will sign only in your own name, and not in the name of any other person, (2) if you sign on behalf of any legal entity, you are duly authorized and empowered to do so on behalf of that entity, (3) no certification authority or other third party verification is necessary to validate the electronic signatures placed on your document via the RocketSign Service, and (4) the lack of any independent certification or third party verification of signatures by the RocketSign Service does not render such signatures invalid or unenforceable, and (5) Rocket Lawyer does not independently authenticate users' signatures or identities using the RocketSign Service.
To use the RocketSign Service, you must be the legal age of majority or otherwise able to form a binding contract under applicable laws and regulations.
Compliance with Electronic Signature Laws
You acknowledge and agree that you have exclusive control and responsibility for the content of documents signed using the RocketSign Service. Some jurisdictions have rules prohibiting or limiting the use of electronic signatures in certain types of documents (e.g., estate planning laws, family planning laws, consumer protection laws, government contracting rules, etc.). Further, some jurisdictions outside the United States have not passed laws authorizing the use of electronic signatures. You agree that you (and not Rocket Lawyer) are solely responsible for determining whether your particular use of the RocketSign Service complies with the applicable laws of your jurisdiction. Rocket Lawyer has no duty to monitor the contents of, and disclaims any obligation to ensure the legality of, documents signed using the RocketSign Service.
By using the RocketSign Service, you agree that you are solely responsible for complying with all applicable document retention laws and regulations pertaining to your electronically signed documents. Although you are free to store executed documents in your Rocket Lawyer account, you may wish to download and independently store a copy of executed documents in your own files. Rocket Lawyer has no obligation to determine the duration any document must be retained under applicable laws and regulations.
You are responsible for the security of documents that are (a) delivered and/or downloaded by you and other recipients by the RocketSign Service, or (b) transferred to another system by API or other integration with the RocketSign Service.
Once a document is fully signed by all applicable parties, you should not tamper with or modify the signatures or other contents of the document, unless all parties to the document have agreed to do so.
- More simply put
The RocketSign Service offers you legally binding electronic signatures; but users must each verify that their use of RocketSign complies with their local laws and regulations.
