Are electronic waivers legally binding? 

Yes, electronic waivers are generally enforceable in most states and in most countries, and are a tool to warn people of the risks of participating in an activity. They disclaim liability by getting people to agree to assume the risk of participating in something. 

eWaiverPro works all over the world in different countries, each with their own laws and rules. We are not attorneys, so we recommend that you contact your attorney before making any determination if the waiver you having your customers sign is legally binding in your state or country.  

The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, 15 U.S.C. § 7001, et seq., (E-Sign Act), signed into law June 30, 2000, provides a general rule of validity for electronic records and signatures for transactions in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce. The E-Sign Act allows the use of electronic records to satisfy any statute, regulation, or rule of law requiring that such information be provided in writing, if the consumer has affirmatively consented to such use and has not withdrawn such consent.
