World Wide Notary, based in Texas, has developed DigaSign, an innovative, simple, Internet service to expedite the signing and/or notarization of documents by utilizing electronic and digital signatures and electronic notarizations. We completed the first fully electronic, mortgage closing in California this past February and the first electronic real estate closing in Texas in 2004.
Pioneering electronic signatures, as early as 1996, World Wide Notary’s management team has years of experience working with stringent Federal mandates, such as HIPAA, E-SIGN and UETA, regarding security and the use of electronic and digital signatures.
Forty seven states and the District of Columbia have adopted UETA. The three states, Illinois, New York and Washington, that have not adopted UETA, do have statutes pertaining to electronic transactions.
