Questions & Answers

What is the legal value of my signed document once it is printed?

Regardless of the medium, what is most important is the preservation of information. In Quebec, according to An Act to Establish a Legal Framework for Information Technology, RSQ, c C-1.1, to argue in evidence, it must be shown that the integrity of the information has been maintained throughout its life cycle. In other words, the content of the printed version must remain identical to its original, digitally signed, electronic version to maintain its legal validity. Conversely, the same principle can be applied, for example, to the original paper version that is digitized and sent by email. The whole of the information must be preserved and we must ensure that it has not been falsified or altered by using protective measures such as a digital signature, an electronic seal, time stamping, etc. Such measures assure that any changes made to the document can be traced.

What is a digital signature? And what is the difference with an electronic signature?

A digital signature is an encrypted electronic signature that can guarantee 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.

Does Notarius store copies of my documents?

What is PDF/A-3?

First and foremost, a PDF is an open standard that allows users to produce electronic documents that are very similar to paper. Being an ISO-standardized format, many governments have adopted the PDF standard as a common standard for producing and archiving electronic files. PDFs can be produced in various ways to meet certain technical requirements. For example, PDF/X is common format for professional printers. PDF/A, including PDF/A-3, are ISO standard-based formats specifically designed for long-term archiving. The key benefit of PDF/A-3 is that it allows a signer to attach any file format (DWG, BIM, JPEG, etc.) in a PDF and secure the integrity of the content with a digital signature.
