What is a digital signature?
A digital signature is an encrypted electronic signature that guarantees the origin of an electronic document, its integrity, and its authenticity. When you manually sign a document, you guarantee your agreement to the text content. A digital signature does the same thing and adds even more information. It guarantees signature authenticity by proving that you are the person who signed, it ensures document integrity, meaning that it has not been modified since the signature, and also confirms that the sustainability of the document, ensuring its validity for years to come.
Difference between a digital and an electronic signature
An electronic signature consists of blocks of information that identify you. A digital signature is a form of electronic signature that is more secure because it is encrypted and can be invisible. It protects many elements of your documents. Watch the CertifiO video
What is the difference between Desktop and Cloud digital signatures?
CertifiO Desktop in housed in a .epf file and works on a computer using any PDF reader. Using the signature in the ConsignO Desktop software, allows you to sign documents in batches and to access dozens of advanced features.
CertifiO Cloud is housed in our secure cloud and works on any device connected to the internet via the ConsignO Cloud Solo web app. You can manage seal parameters and sign documents from a smart phone.
Both CertifiO Desktop and CertifiO Cloud are compatible with the ConsignO Cloud electronic signature platform, which allows you to optimize "internal-external" signature projects.
What is a digital signature certificate and what type of information does it contain?
The digital signature certificate can be compared to a passport. It contains information that helps authenticate the signer’s identity and links them to their digital signature. All recipients can see the certificate’s details by accessing Notarius’ online certification servers. Certificates are issued by Notarius, a certification authority, once a user’s identity and, when applicable, professional status, have been verified. The certificate is an electronic file that meets the X.509 standard and is signed by a recognized certification authority. It contains data that identifies the user, such as:
- The user’s distinctive name (last name, first name, and, when applicable, member number)
- The name of the user’s professional association, when applicable
- The user’s email address
- The user’s public verification key
- The certificate’s validity period
- The certificate’s serial number
- The issuing certificate authority’s digital signature to verify and guarantee the authenticity of the information contained within the certificate
Moreover, the certificate contains a public verification key that matches the private signature key. Together, they create a link between the user and the asymmetric key pair.
Is my digital signature recognized elsewhere in Canada?
Yes. Notarius is compliant with the criteria specified in the federal law, Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. There may also be particular provincial laws whose criteria Notarius respects because they generally have the same effect as the federal law and as such, are very similar.
Why an in-person identity verification process?
For your security!
Notarius’ digital signature confirms your identity in the digital world and carries the same legal value as your handwritten signature for all types of documents, including binding contracts. It is therefore necessary to uphold a rigorous and secure application process.
Does Notarius store copies of my documents?
Does Notarius have access to my credit card number?
When you pay by credit card, the information entered in your browser is sent directly to Paysafe Payments, a reliable company recognized for its online payment processing solution. The data does not transit through Notarius servers; we therefore do not have access to your entire credit card number. Our payment processing platform will provide us with the last 4 digits of your credit card number as part of the transaction confirmation.
I would like to bill my company. How do I do that?
Your company must first have a direct billing account with Notarius. Once an account has been opened, the option to direct bill your employer will be instantly available when you sign up through the portal based on your work email domain name.
Notarius offers group rates on annual subscription fees for groups of 51 users or more charged to the same account. See the different rates available under the “Pricing” tab on your professional association’s page. For more information, contact the Sales team.
I exercise my profession in multiple jurisdictions; how do I get an additional signature?
If you exercise in one or more jurisdictions and the professional associations that you belong to issue digital signatures through the Notarius Certificate Authority, there is absolutely NO SIGN-UP FEE, and the cost of additional digital signatures is $99 per signature.
For example, if you are a member of EGBC, APEGA and APEGS, your digital signature fees would break down as follows:
1st EGBC digital signature: $99 + $195 = $294
2nd APEGA digital signature: $99
3rd APEGS digital signature: $99
Total for first year: $492 for all three signatures
Total for second year: $393 for all three signatures
Can I ask my technician or assistant to sign in my place and use my digital signature?
NO. This goes against your authentication standards and our certificate policies. Your right to use a digital signature may be revoked if you share your digital signature and password with someone else, including your colleagues, spouse and children. A third party may prepare your signature zone, but you are the only person who can use your digital signature.
