- Admissibility of contracts concluded electronically in EU countries.
- Legal requirements in different countries for validating documents in electronic form, including affixing the electronic signature or digital signature.
- Validity of deeds in various countries when they are concluded by means of e-mail exchange or by clicking (double-clicking) on a button for acceptance.
