As business attorneys in Texas, we are often asked whether electronic contracts and signatures are valid in Texas. In Texas, a record or signature may not be denied legal effect or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form. Likewise, a contract may not be denied legal effect or enforceability solely because an electronic record was used in its formation. Additionally, if a law requires a record to be in writing, an electronic record satisfies the law, and an electronic signature satisfies a legal requirements for a signature. An electronic record or electronic signature is attributable to a person if it was the act of the person. The act of the person may be shown in any manner, including a showing of the efficacy of any security procedure applied to determine the person to which the electronic record or electronic signature was attributable.
