Petition Software 1

Legally Binding Instant Electronic Signature

Legally binding and compliant in all U.S. States and E.U. Countries and most jurisdictions around the world. Advanced options for military-grade PGP and HIPAA medical compliance on private clouds. SwiftCloud runs on 256 Bit SSL bank-grade encryption spanning multiple servers with auto backup. Docs can be signed 24/7 / any device / anywhere in multiple languages. Optionally add webcam, ID upload, photos or files uploads, mobile phone geolocation info and more. We take this stuff seriously, so if you need something you don't see, drop us a line.

Petition Software 2

Voter Contact Manager

SwiftCloud is technically a social network, but we do not sell data. Each signature is bundled into that person’s profile, so you’ll be able to see a complete engagement with that person or organization. SwiftCRM is “baked into” the platform, so you can easily see a contact’s complete history with you, interact through a portal for secure payments and/or private messaging, store files for influential contacts and more.

Petition Software 1

e-Petitions, Secure & Customizable

You have complete control over branding, colors, logos, and can map a domain to our server (i.e. Secure.YourPoliticalParty.org). Optionally bundle multiple ballots together into a chain, optionally add refer-a-friend and/or donation pages after signature, prompt users to add voting day to their calendars & more. By default, you’ll get a signed PDF for each signer, they’ll get a customizable-email receipt copy, and you can later export a complete petition with a single doc with many signatures (+ info such as legal voting address) in rows, similar to paper.

FAQ

Is electronic signature legally binding?

Yes! Electronic Signatures are 100% legally binding in nearly every jurisdiction around the globe, including the U.S. and E.U.

Furthermore, electronic signatures are actually MORE difficult to forge than a traditional ink signature, because of the digital “fingerprinting” left at time of signature.

For all paying accounts, expert witnesses are available for court appearance or deposition in the highly unlikely event enforcement assistance is needed.

Each e-Signature done on the Swift Signature platform also carries an audit trail, and optional SwiftCloud-account security requirements.

For some exciting reading, we encourage you to review specific laws for your area, such as…

United States: ESIGN Act of 2000, UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions) Act European Union: Electronic Signatures Directive of 1999 & 1993 Various other countries

UPDATED: Country-specifics list started:

Brazil

Practically speaking, enforcement for most civil contracts requires a subscriber’s willingness to sue and take the matter to court. For our part, we are frankly looking forward to making a few examples of anyone attacking the status and legal authenticity of the signatures, and have a lot to gain (both publicity as well as direct financial damages) by proving this matter.

To aid in enforcement, we have available both expert witnesses and attorneys, and in addition ......More...

e-Signature with Payment - can I?

Electronic Signature & Payment is easy.

NEW: “Sign & Pay”. You can get payment right in the doc.

This is perfect for service professionals, rental forms, you name it – get legally binding e-Sign + payment all in one using Stripe, with additional payment options (including ACH e-Check) coming soon.

OLD:In short you have two options:

Get Money then e-Signature or Get e-Signature then Money

Either are fine, and which is right for you depends on the nature of your sale. If you have a smaller amount (and thus more frequent), we recommend collecting money first, then getting signature.

If you have a higher dollar amount, the value of the contract is increased but the contract is usually not in force until consideration (aka payment) is made and thus for more complex contracts you probably want the contract signed first.

Either is fine, and there’s no real wrong answer – in the end the result is the same – you need both.

To setup e-signature then payment via paypal, create your form as usual (at http://swiftcloud.io/form/create-form ) and on the right side you’ll see some options under “User Flow” like this:

There you can choose an e-commerce product or service to ......More...
