[Darmstadt, 12. July 2022] Making precaution simple and accessible to everyone – that is the goal of meine-vorsorgedokumente.de. In just a few simple steps, the precautionary documents are created, digitally signed with AUTHADA sign and stored in the application. Thanks to the possibility of making the precautionary documents available digitally to emergency contacts, contact persons can retrieve the documents in an emergency. The original documents are always available, not just a copy. With AUTHADA sign, users can sign the documents with their smartphone. This generates a so-called “qualified electronic signature” (QES), which is also equivalent to a handwritten signature at the legal level. No handwritten signature is visible in the signed document, but the entire document contains a kind of stamp in the file path. This stamp can only be generated if the signatory has clearly identified himself beforehand.
Secure signature with ID card and smartphone
Identification and QES can be carried out in a few minutes, at any time and from anywhere with AUTHADA sign. All that is required is the ID card (German identity card, residence permit or eID card for EU citizens), the PIN and an NFC-enabled smartphone. The identification process confirms the identity of the signatory and clearly assigns the signature to the signatory. Unlike postal or video identification processes, people do not have to show themselves in a branch or in front of a camera. “It was very important to us that the privacy of our customers is also taken into account during the identification process. AUTHADA’s solution was therefore ideal for us,” says Tobias Stirnweiß, Product Owner at meine-vorsorgedokumente.de.
Making provisions – for yourself and your relatives
If the worst happens, the precautionary documents at hand not only ensure that one’s own will is implemented, but also relieve the burden on relatives. “An accident can turn the life of the whole family upside down. Having to make decisions in this situation is an additional burden for the family members. We would like to prevent this with our offer – even if we hope that our customers will not have to make use of their provisions,” says Tobias Stirnweiß, Product Owner at meine-vorsorgedokumente.de.
Digital and secure pension provision
The cooperation with AUTHADA makes it even easier to create and save the precautionary documents. “We are very happy about this cooperation and about making it a little easier for people to make provisions for the future,” says Andreas Plies, CEO and co-founder of AUTHADA. In addition to the reliable and legally secure identification solution, another decisive factor in favour of AUTHADA is its legal security: AUTHADA is certified according to ISO/IEC 27001 and the BSI and stores data according to the highest security standards.
