However, ECTA clarifies that its provisions (which allow the use of data messages and electronic signatures where a law requires writing and signature) do not apply to agreements concluded within the meaning of the Alienation of Land Act. If an agreement stipulates that the parties must attach their signatures to give their consent – and no other signature requirement is specified – a handwritten signature or one of the above signatures is sufficient. This Agreement may be signed in any number of equivalents and each counterparty must represent a fully executed original, as if it were signed by both parties. The delivery by fax or electronic means of an equivalent of one signature page to this Agreement (e.g. B».pdf» or «.tif») is considered to be the delivery of an equivalent of this manually executed agreement. Electronic signatures are legally binding in thirty European countries, the United States and the vast majority of countries around the world. An electronic signature can have the same weight and legal effect as a traditional paper document with a pen and ink signature.
