About eSignatures

An electronic signature, often referred to as an e-signature, is a piece of digital data (that could be someone’s name, initials, pincode, etc.) which is added to an electronic document to approve or agree with the terms of a document. An e-signature is the equivalent of a handwritten signature.

Business transactions become infinitely easier when using e-signatures. Here are just some of the benefits:

  • Faster and more secure.
  • Cheaper and more convenient.
  • Happier employees, customers, and suppliers.
  • Clarity of information at all times.
  • Legally binding and in line with Saudi Arabia law.
  • You’re contributing to saving the planet by being environmentally friendly.

Our end-to-end solution enables you to sign and manage your agreements with customers, vendors, employees, investors, and others in a fast, streamlined and secure way. Our web app allows you to:

  • Sign your agreements in seconds across all devices.

E-signatures are legally binding in Saudi Arabia. As per Article 14 in Saudi eTransactions Law established in 2007: “The electronic signature shall be equal to a handwritten signature, having the same legal effects.” This means that an electronic signature carries the same weight and legal effect as a traditional paper document with an ink signature.

  • Data encryption and storage
All data is encrypted with a 256-bit encryption algorithm at rest and transfer. Signit platform receives the document from the user over SSL (TLSv1.3 protocol). 
  • Detailed audit trail
Signit creates and maintains a detailed document history, which shows all document activities and who performed them, including full names, email, verification information, and time stamps.
  • Two-factor signer authentication
Signit offers an extra layer of protection for user accounts using 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) which significantly decreases the risk of unauthorized access and system breaches.

User credentials along with MFA information are encrypted using Argon2 hashing algorithm and stored encrypted in the database. In addition, the user's critical data, i.e kyc data, is encrypted. For that data encryption/decryption we make use of AES-128-CBC (AES in CBC mode with 128 bit key and PKCS7 for padding). For data encryption authentication we make use of HMAC-SHA-256 (HMAC using SHA256). That data is stored encrypted and the key encrypting the data is itself stored encrypted and protected in HSM.

Our data is hosted within Saudi Arabia to comply with local regulations. The data is stored in Oracle data center based in Jeddah.This data center is classified as Class C by CITC, which is the highest level of classification allowing it to host the most confidential data of government agencies. https://www.cst.gov.sa/en/services/licensing/Pages/ApprovedServiceRegistery.aspx 

  • Signer Authentication
Signer identity verification is an option you can set for each signer, requiring them to provide additional information to prove their identity before they can access the document. Once authentication is obtained, it is captured in an Audit Trail page and is embedded with the document. Identity verification methods include: SMS, Absher or Nafath. If your use case requires a higher threshold for signers to prove their identity, then use the necessary verification method.
  • Detailed Audit Trail
Signit also creates and maintains an audit trail which records the entire history of a document. The audit trail includes the date the document was uploaded, viewed, signed, and who took each action. You can view the audit trail directly through the Signit app or by downloading the document with the audit trail embedded in it. 
  • Digital Certificate
Signit provides a digital certificate that tracks changes made to a document after the document has been completed. The digital certificate guards against the tampering of a document after the signer has completed and signed it. You can view the digital certificate with Adobe Reader, under the Signature Panel. If the document was changed in any manner, the digital certificate created by Signit will be broken. 

We keep your personal information for as long as necessary or relevant for the purposes for which it is processed. We also keep information as required by law. You can control and delete documents in your account at any time. If the document has been shared with another party, it will remain visible to them until either they delete it or it is deleted by all parties with access to the document.

Upon request Signit will work to expunge all customer data and solely owned documents from our systems. Documents under legal hold or owned by multiple parties will be deleted upon completion of the legal hold process or upon deletion by the other parties at their discretion. ‍To initiate a data deletion / data destruction event please contact hala@signit.sa
