At Docuten we always state that we are a Trusted Third Party. But what does this mean? Ángel Aparicio, co-founder and Product Manager of Docuten, explains this in this video.
The figure of the Trusted Third Party is included in the Law on Services of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce, and defines the Trusted Third Party as a figure that records the declarations of will that make up the electronic contracts and that sets the date and the time when these communications have taken place.
Based on this, Docuten establishes the appropriate mechanisms to guarantee security in communications, the collection at any time and place of the evidence in each of the steps of the process, the records of the application, notification to participants, opening of mails, access to the documents, the signature of the afore mentioned documents… And it goes on to safe guard this whole set so that these documents can constitute what is called electronic proof.
As a Trusted Third Party, we are required to safe guard all such information for a minimum period of five years, during which either party may access it if necessary. In the new European Electronic Signature Regulation, also known as eIDAS, Trusted Third Parties become, with certain nuances, Trust Service Providers. With all this, Docuten ensures the full legality and security of the procedures carried out, as well as the custody of the data and the non-alteration of the documents.
