VIDsigner facilitates electronic transactions completed between different countries of the EU and the rest of the world. Our service’s high standards ensure that all signatures produced with VIDsigner are undeniably forms of legal evidence.
The decision to use reliable signature services is never simply based on technological considerations or cost. When we are faced with processes with legal implications, such as that of signing informed consent forms in the healthcare sector, the processing of public records or the creation of employment contracts, a third and very important factor usually comes into play: responsibility.
The use of reliable providers to formalise important legal transactions naturally calls for legal certainty, neutrality assurance and accountability.
1. Legal security, understood as “the certainty of the law” is the assurance that there is a third party present, a specialist in the field who ensures that all procedures consistently comply with legal regulations. 2. Neutrality. In the digital world, the prevention of tampering can only be guaranteed by those who control the environment. It is therefore not advisable that any involved party controls this environment. Regulatory changes (such as the recent European eIDAS regulation) are increasingly leading us to the use of trusted third parties.
3. Responsibility. As well as neutrality and legal certainty, responsibility is also an incredibly valuable characteristic of the service. Accountability is intrinsically linked to the provision of services and it is this that gives it value.
Compliance with international standards

The Hébergeurs de Données de Santé (HDS) certification is required for cloud service providers hosting personal health data, regulated by French law and collected for the provision of preventive, diagnostic and other healthcare services. The HDS regulation was issued by ANS (Agence du Numérique en Santé) which, under the French Ministry of Health, is responsible for promoting e-health solutions in France. In order to become HDS certified, service providers must implement security and privacy measures that safeguard patients' personal health information. As part of these measures, we employ strong authentication and authorization procedures, robust backup systems, and strong encryption. View certificate
The National Security Scheme (ENS) developed by Royal Decree 3/2010 of 8 January defines the requirements for establishing a security policy in the use of electronic media and thus achieve adequate protection of information and its related systems.
These principles and requirements guarantee the correct level of security that is applicable to both the systems of Public Administrations and their suppliers in the private sector. There are three levels of certification of the ENS: basic, medium and high. The high level gives the maximum security guarantees with respect to the certified systems. More info
