  2. 2. USAGE AND DISCLAIMERS <ul><ul><li>The real estate world has given me much, and I’m always happy to return the favor. If you find this presentation at all helpful, please email me at [email_address] so I have an idea where it’s been. If you want to use this presentation in public or tweak it, go ahead; all I ask is that you at least mention my efforts – e.g. “Presentation by Agent Annie, based partly on the work of Kevin Boer.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I am not a lawyer and in no way is this document intended as a legal perspective on electronic signatures in general, or on electronic signatures in real estate transactions in particular. If you would like to use electronic signatures in your real estate business, you need to start by doing your own research to find out </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If it’s legally binding for real estate transactions in your jurisdiction </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If you, your clients, and everybody else involved in the transaction is comfortable with electronic signatures. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Though this presentation mentions Docusign, this is not an endorsement for their particular electronic signature package. I am not employed by Docusign. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I take no responsibility for anything that might happen as a result of you using electronic signatures. If you decide to try them out, and the technology happens not to be working when you need it, and as a result you lose a deal…I’m sorry, I feel your pain…but I cannot take responsibility. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enough said… </li></ul></ul>
