The following types of electronic signatures are accepted:
- a digital signature with a digital certificate produced using a specialized tool
- a signature made using an input tool such as a stylus, touchscreen or mouse
- a scanned hand-written signature (an image of a signature)
Typed signatures are not accepted.
