Una firma electrónica son datos en formato electrónico que se adjuntan o se asocian lógicamente y que el firmante utiliza para firmar. Existen tres clases de firmas electrónicas distintas según el Reglamento (UE) 910/2014, cuya diferencia radica en la carga de la prueba. Si bien a la firma electrónica no se le negará efecto jurídico y la admisibilidad como prueba en procedimientos judiciales por el mero hecho de que  haya sido formalizada en formato electrónico.

In addition to the legality that an electronic signature can have on its own, contractual freedom must be taken into account, that is, the will of the parties to sign or formalize a contract in a certain way.
