Understanding the Law – E-SIGN Compliant Electronic Signatures

On June 30, 2000, Congress enacted the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (“ESIGN” or “the Act”), to facilitate the use of electronic records and signatures in interstate and foreign commerce by ensuring the validity and legal effect of contracts entered into electronically. Yet many do not understand how their business can be compliant with the E-SIGN Act.

First we need to understand that E-SIGN (additional E-SIGN analysis here) [http://privasign.com/laws-esign.asp], in section 101(b) does not require people to use electronic signatures. When electronic signatures are used then Sub-section (c), in direct support of (b), requires a “Consumer Disclosure” that the consumer also “consent electronically, in a manner that reasonably demonstrates that the consumer can access information in the electronic form that will be used to provide the information that is the subject of the consent”.

As we can clearly see, the law outlines a two step process to signing files electronically. First, disclosure of the consumer’s right to use paper, which is followed by their consent to the electronic process. The second phase is the actual capture of the electronic signature.

Once the signature is captured the law directs its attention to the electronic record that has now been created. This aspect of the law, while often overlooked, provides the true power and cost savings of electronic signatures – the ability to STORE electronic files. Printing and storing a paper copy of the electronic record defeats the achievements of this law. It is the accessibility and cheap storage costs of electronic files that really amount to long term cost savings. Sub-section (d) details the retention of contracts and records. If a “statute, regulation, or other rule of law requires” the file to be retained then “that requirement is met by retaining an electronic record”.

Selling Electronics for Absolute Beginners

If you spend a lot of time online, odds are you’ve come across ads about buying or selling electronics. If you’re like most people, you probably skipped right over them without a second thought. The thing is, these ads represent a fast, easy way for you to make some money with no strings attached, even if you have absolutely no experience buying or selling anything on the internet.

Electronics companies make money off of enticing people to want the next big thing. There’s nothing wrong with that, but some electronics can end up being obsolete less than a year after they’re released! This means that, if you’re like the average internet user, you probably have a bunch of mobile devices, like cell phones, that are just sitting around your house. You might even have an old laptop or two. If that’s true, have you considered selling electronics? It’s the single best way to make some fast money, clean up your home a little, and help out someone who needs a new device.

Selling electronics might sound complicated if you haven’t done it before. If you’re thinking of opening an online shop, things like buying stock, setting up a web presence, and marketing your business can certainly become hard work. Fortunately, if you’re just looking to get rid of some old or broken electronic devices, you don’t need to go to those lengths. You can unload your unwanted junk through a used electronics dealer, and have a much easier, more profitable experience than you would selling electronics yourself.

To sell used electronics yourself, you’d have to:

– Get a stockpile of used electronics.
– Be able to fix them up, delete their data, and refurbish them to “like new” condition.
– Pay for web space for your website.

How to Protect Your Electronics From Heat

1.0 INTRODUCTION
In our modern society, we have become very dependent upon our electronic gadgets and appliances. Most households (in the U.S) have Personal Computers with an Internet Connection. If we solely looked at the Personal Computer, we do a lot of thing with this product.

 

  • We communicate with our friends, family members and business associates.
  • We conduct financial transactions (e.g., buy or sell products on line)
  • We create all kinds of documents (which are very important to our personal and business finances/operations)
  • We store and play music (in the form of *.mp3 files)
  • We (increasingly) store pictures that have sentimental value (and could be tough to replace if lost).

 

For many people, anytime their “computer dies”, it becomes a major inconvenience in their lives. If you were to look at some other electronic systems that we typically have in our homes, such as

 

  • DVD Players
  • Gaming Systems (e.g., Playstation, X-Box, Nintendo, Wii, etc.)
  • Audio Entertainment Equipment
  • Video Recording Equipment (for you people that like to post videos on YouTube.
  • Appliances (such as Central Air Conditioning Systems, Heat Pumps, Microwave Ovens, etc.)
  • HDTVs (e.g., LCD or Plasma)

 

All of these items entertain us, enlighten us and provide us with comfort. These products each require a considerable amount of money to purchase. Further, repairing and/or replacing these products is also quite expensive. Hence, I am quite amazed that people do not do more to protect their investment (in these electronic systems) and do whatever they can to extend the operating life time of these products.

In general, there are three (3) different destructive mechanisms that will either destroy or greatly reduce the operational life-time of your electronics. These three destructive mechanisms are

Modern Trends in Sports Administration and Management

One of the major factors militating against the development of sports in Nigeria today is lack of effective management. A lot of solutions are being proffered by concerned and patriotic Nigerians daily to bail us out the quagmire. One of such solutions is this text entitled “Modern Trends in Sports Administration and Management”. It is written by Dr. Joseph Awoyinfa, a lecturer in the Department of Human Kinetics and Health Education, Faculty of Education, University of Lagos, Nigeria; a researcher and educational consultant. I was the person invited by the author and the university to review the book when it was presented to the public on December 4, 2008 in Nigeria.

According to Awoyinfa, it is a truism all over the world that sport is now a reference issue which can no longer be ignored at various sectors of the economy and spheres of life. The author adds that this text thus takes a critical look at topical issues in sports administration and management, dwelling on theories and principles of modern trends in sports administration and management such as leadership, organisation, planning, motivation, etc.

It guides you in selecting the right windows for you, to ultimately purchasing your windows, and arranging for their installation. Included are other considerations important to your selection of the right window contractor.

Energy loss costs you money!

Recently, energy costs have skyrocketed and have become a major portion of your monthly home budget. Windows and doors happen to be the greatest single source of energy loss in the home; a very high percentage of heat is lost through the windows and doors. Becoming more energy efficient and replacing old windows is an intelligent and powerful way to decrease monthly utility bills while increasing your home’s value. Replacing drafty, difficult to operate older windows with the newer thermally insulated windows, which have a Low E type glass (explained later in this report), can reduce your yearly energy bills by as much as 40%.

How to Choose Between Window Repair or Replacement and Gain the Most Efficiency

With low wintertime temperatures the cold will creep in and pool at windows in need of repair or maintenance, plus drive up wintertime electricity bills. Just like any other part of a house, windows require maintenance and repair, and sometimes replacing, if the damage is too great. Windows are the most vulnerable point in a home for heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer.

How will you know if windows just need maintenance or require replacing?

The general rule of thumb to follow for window repair versus replacement is to repair windows with spotty damage and replace with damage throughout. Take the example of a fogged window. We would repair a fogged window that has lost it’s seal.

What about newer super efficient windows – Why not just replace all of the windows at once?

It would seem like the best solution might be newer, more energy efficient windows. Advances in technology and the Low-E double pane type are much more efficient now, than they were years ago. But do they pay for themselves if replaced with more efficient models?
