Different signature types represent different levels of authentication. It is the responsibility of the signatory to choose the risk rating of a transaction and the level of authentication appropriate to the risk rating, as in the case of electronic documents. In the case of riskier transactions the choice of advanced electronic signature (AES) or the use of a qualified e-signature when the transaction value limit is exceeded, we may not be able to rely on the level of authenticity we would need in a possible judicial dispute. If the value of a given transaction exceeds the transaction value limit indicated in the signing certificate, according to Hungarian law, the signature will not create a private document with full probative value, however, the document signed in this way will still be considered written.

Please note that detailed knowledge of the case is essential to select the correct signature type, and the responsibility for using the incorrect signature type lies entirely with the signatory, so we recommend that you contact your legal representative with the matter.
