In the United States, The Uniform Electronics Transactions Act (UETA) was enacted in 1999 at the state level to provide legal guidelines for the validation of online signatures. The UETA also details the validity of online signatures and business transactions, but it was enacted into federal law in 2000.

As long as your account is active, we retain all data - nothing ever gets deleted, and our databases are backed up to protect against possible data loss. If you cancel your account, we retain everything for a period of 30 days so you can download a copy of everything. There is an export feature that will generate a zip file that contains all waivers for any date range you choose. The zip file contains all the waivers as html files, and includes html web page table of contents you can view to navigate through all the waivers.
Answer
Yes, but be aware that disabling General Admission will mean that in order to sign a waiver, users must select from one of your events. If this is the desired behavior, use the steps below to hide the General Admission button.
  1. Log into the admin (e.g. mysite.waiverfile.com/admin)
  2. Go to Settings >> Customize Labels
  3. Erase the General Admission Term.
  4. Click Save
When the General Admission Term is blank, the button will disappear. Note that if you want to simply rename the General Admission term, you can do so under the same area. Just change the value to anything you like and click Save.


Answer
Yes, WaiverFile lets you organize your Waiver collection and storage by parties. You can set up parties in your site admin (e.g. mysite.waiverfile.com/admin) under the Events section. Create new events and they will appear for visitors to select from when they sign their waiver. Depending on how you use this feature, you can change the wording. For example, if your business hosts birthday parties, you may want the option to say "Here for a party?". These labels can be customized under Settings >> Customize Labels.

On the dashboard, you will have an overview of all the current events going on. This makes it easy to ensure that all the members of a party have completed their waiver.

When you export waivers, your data will be organized into events as they were collected.
Answer
Yes, some form fields can be removed, but are enabled by default. In your site admin (mysite.waiverfile.com/admin) under Settings, select General Settings. At the bottom of that screen, you can choose which fields you want to include and/or require. Note that the participant name and full name are always enabled and cannot be removed. If you wish to add additional form fields, select the Custom Questions option under Settings.
Answer

Note that you can share this link using email, your website, or social media. If you have any questions about how to proceed, please feel free to contact us. We're here to help!

Customers do not have to log in to sign a waiver. They can, however, create a password, which will allow them to sign in next time they visit and fill out the form more quickly. This makes it easier for repeat customers to complete their waiver signing process.
