What is an electronic signature ?

An electronic signature (or digital signature) represents a person’s consent to an electronic document.

LiveConsent applies both a digital signature and a secure timestamp to each document processed. The LiveConsent signature is compliant with the EU Regulation 910/2014 “eIDAS”.

LiveConsent uses an advanced electronic signature compliant with Article 26 of the eIDAS regulation.

Article 26 – Requirements for advanced electronic signatures:
“An advanced electronic signature must meet the following requirements:
1. it is uniquely linked to the signatory ;
2. it is able to identify the signatory ;
3. it is created using electronic signature creation data that the signatory can use, with a high degree of confidence, under his or her sole control ;
4. it is linked to the data signed with it in such a way that any subsequent change to the data is detectable.”
