for electronic signing
It is necessary that each signature can be attributed to a single person.
Therefore, Skribble requires the identification of the signatories.
The procedures differ depending on the type of contract.
Contracts without written form
The simple electronic signature (SES) or the advanced electronic signature (AES) are typically used for contracts without formal requirements. The identification requirements for SES and AES are low to medium.
Identification options for contracts without written form:
Contracts requiring the written form
For contracts requiring the written form, the qualified electronic signature (QES) is typically used. The identification requirements for the QES are high, the identification must be done face-to-face or online via video.
Identification options for the qualified electronic signature (QES):
Electronic identity (eID)
People who log on to Skribble with a verified eID automatically activate QES or AES.
A growing number of people in Europe have a verified electronic identity (eID). Skribble integrates these eIDs. This means that millions of people can sign immediately with QES or AES without additional identification procedures.
"The investment in Skribble is the perfect complement to our engagement with SwissID. Both solutions multiply their added value through integration. An ideal symbiosis and prime example of cooperation in the Swiss technology ecosystem."
The simple electronic signature (SES) and the advanced electronic signature (AES) are legally valid for all contracts for which the law does not prescribe a specific form (contracts without the written form). You use the qualified electronic signature (QES) for contracts with a written requirement or to meet internal compliance requirements.

With SES, the e-mail address is used to identify the signer. The e-mail address must be confirmed by clicking on a link that is sent to the corresponding e-mail address.
The legal identification requirements are not the same. QES is the highest standard and is equivalent to a handwritten signature. The identification requirements for QES are precisely defined by the law. With SES and AES, providers have more freedom. When selecting identification procedures for SES and AES, Skribble pays attention to simplicity of use and maximisation of legal weight.
