Digital Signatures Overview

Permission Click is dedicated to the ongoing privacy and assurance of your transactions and personal information. We’ve developed and maintain a world­class secure system infrastructure, to ensure your information is private, secure and available when you need it.


Your connection to Permission Click is secure and encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This is the same level of encryption used by leading banks and government agencies.

Your documents and transactions are also stored and encrypted at rest using AES ­ 256 bit encryption. This means that even if someone were able to bypass the physical security (see below) and access a hard drive, they still wouldn't be able to decrypt your data.


Permission Click is hosted in a state­of­the­art SOC 2 Type 2, SAS70 Type II, SSAE 16 facility that has achieved ISO 27001 and ISO/IEC 27018 certification. Physical access is strictly controlled by professional security staff utilizing video surveillance, state of the art intrusion detection systems, and other electronic means. Authorized staff must pass two­factor authentication no fewer than three times to access data center floors.


Permission Click creates a comprehensive transaction trail between signing parties. To provide you with a transaction history, we track and timestamp various information from the moment the document is submitted for signature to when it is completely signed and secured, such as IP address and associated user information. To ensure any tampering of your transaction log is detectable, we process the transactions log with hashing technology.

The Audit Trail that is appended to all executed eSignatures including an identifier that we can use to lookup the corresponding transaction log in our database. These records include a hash of the PDF document which we can compare to the hash of a questionable PDF document to determine whether or not it has been modified or tampered with. RELIABILITY

The system used to store Permission Click documents is designed with durability in mind, with data automatically replicated in multiple data centers.
