With CloudSign, recipients of documents can forward those documents to other members with decision-making privilege.
For example, when using CloudSign to send a contract to a staff in charge at a client company, the recipient receiving the document can forward the document to another member with decision-making privilege at their company.
The appropriate authorized decision-maker consenting to the document ensures the legal validity of the document.
Overview of functions and legal advantages
To ensure the validity of contracts, a person appropriately authorized by the company with the privilege must consent to the content of the document.
The use of this function enables the recipient to forward documents to members with decision-making privilege, which allows agreements to be concluded by the appropriate approver.
While the recipient can forward the confirmation request email they received to the decision-maker to consent to the document, this will not leave any record of the forwarding history or the actual consent given by the authorized decision-maker left on CloudSign or in the electronic signature.
Using CloudSign’s forwarding function makes it possible to leave a record of information like these, allowing authorized decision-makers to conclude agreements while retaining maximum credibility of those concluded documents.
Usage (Paid plan)
When sending documents, there is an option to select whether or not to allow forwarding by the recipient.
The option is set to allow forwarding by default, so please select “Do not allow” if you do not wish to allow forwarding.
See the following link for operations of recipients.
Note that even if the recipient has not registered an account with CloudSign, the recipient can use CloudSign’s forwarding function.
