Skribble complies with
the legal requirements
for procurement

With Skribble you sign legally and securely according
to the following requirements:

Skribble works with legally defined e-signature standards: The qualified electronic signature (QES), the advanced electronic signature (AES) and the simple electronic signature (SES).

The qualified electronic signature (QES) available on Skribble is legally equivalent to a handwritten signature in the EU and Switzerland (eg. BGB in Germany or OR in Switzerland).

Skribble and its signing partner Swisscom commit to manage data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP). Moreover, all data is hosted in Switzerland according to banking standards.

All available e-signature standards from a single source

The law distinguishes between three e-signature standards.
They vary in terms of area of application and legal weight.

All clear?

Skribble’ s data centre is located in Switzerland and is ISO 270001 certified (according to banking standards).

Your suppliers don’t need a Skribble account to sign using an invitation link. If your suppliers have their own signing tools in place, you can send the document signed with Skribble directly from our platform or by e-mail to your supplier. They can then sign it with their tool and return it to you or vice versa.

Yes. On Skribble you can choose the highest e-signature standard available: the qualified electronic signature (QES). It has the highest legal weight in court.

Not exclusively. Thanks to the visual signature, it can be seen on the printed contract that it has been digitally signed. However, since the digital certificates are lost when printed out, the traceability of the signature and thus the corresponding conclusiveness is not given. A contract signed with a qualified electronic signature must therefore always be stored in electronic form.
