The Electronic Transactions Act 1999 (Cth) recognises an electronic signature as valid if it identifies the person signing and shows their intention, the signing method is reliable, and the person receiving the signature consents to the signer using an electronic signature. Electronic signatures have been used for electronically signing offer letters, sales contracts, permission slips, rental/lease agreements, liability waivers, financial documents, etc. They are legally enforceable in most business and personal transactions in almost every country in the world.
