This is a off topic question, but I do not know where to go with it.

I just signed up with It is a service where you upload an
image file with your handwritten signature. Later on you can upload a
document and they will merge your signature and document, and mail it to
the one you specified. (at least that is how I understand it)

They claim ( that electronic signatures
are legally binding, and refer fx to "European Directive (EC/1999/93)" (
As far as I can see, this document is about digital signing using
certificate and so on.

As I see it, the service provided by has nothing to do with
the topics in "European Directive (EC/1999/93)".

Am I right or wrong?
