Subject: Digital Signing of licences
I vaguely remember someone posting on here a while ago a query about whether it was acceptable for a digital document to count as signed for legal purposes if it had the name filled in or something similar? This was in relation to HER/SMR data licences.
Does this sound like you? If so please get in touch with me!
Can anyone tell me if this is true or not even if it wasn't them?
Can anyone tell me what I am on about?? : )
hope that makes some sort of sense
