Legal validity of Signature question



I am new to SurveyGizmo and have been very much enjoying the product so far. 

I am considering to use the Signature question to collect customers’ signatures in a contract form. However this should have legal validity and I wasn’t sure whether this would answer all our needs, particularly as we operate in the UK and EU. 

It would be great to have more specific resources if possible?

    Hi all,

    I touched based with our compliance and development teams. The Signature question was not built with to the eSign standards.

    I will make note of this with for discussion of future possible improvements. As we hear that more users that are looking for the Signature question to meet these standards we’ll definitely consider prioritizing this request!

          I have flagged your posting for the attention of SurveyGizmo Support.  Generally speaking, an online signature is considered to be legally valid as long as it meets the requirements of  local regulations.  In the EU this would be eIDAS (NIST-DSS in the US).  SurveyGizmo Support should be able to tell you which standards are met by the Signature type question.

          You can contact them yourself at or thru one of the other HELP channels.
