Online Signature FAQ
Do you keep a record of my signature on your system?
No, for privacy reasons we do not keep any record of your signature data or your signature image on our servers. Everything that happens related to your signature is done in your browser and can't be seen (or accessed) by anyone else.
What's the difference between an online signature, electronic signature, and digital signature?
This free tool helps you create a free downloadable electronic signature, which is the same as an online signature. Digital signatures are a type of electronic signature with encrypted information that helps verify the authenticity of messages and documents. This typically involves a more complicated process involving private and public encryption keys. More on digital signatures here. We also have further reading for you if you want to know exactly what is an electronic signature.
Can I use this signature maker tool for legal documents?
Absolutely. When you enter or draw your name it gets converted into a downloadable signature image. This image can be embedded in documents, PDFs, and anything else that supports using images. Signatures by themselves don't make things legal, but they can help with identification and intent when it comes to legal contracts.
How do I use the signature image that I downloaded from here?
Signature images are meant to be added to documents or other places that allow embeddding of images. Once downloaded you may want to keep the file on your computer (or save in an online storage service like Dropbox). If you also to have your legal documents completed or signed, you should check out our free document signing tool, Docsketch.
