I forgot my password. How can I retrieve it?
You can change your password by clicking on the link to open your agreement from the email notification sent to you. When your agreement opens, click on the signature box with your name and a pop up window will appear with a “Forget Password” button that will prompt you with a security question. Answer the security question correctly and your password will be emailed to you. If you are unable to answer your security question, please contact your sales representative or the person who sent you the document for further assistance.
How do I change my password?
Please contact your sales representative or the person who sent you the agreement to change your password. An email with a link to change your password will be sent to you.
I am attempting to sign an agreement, but am unable to register. What should I do?
Most often trouble registering can be associated with having too many Internet Browsers open at the same time. Close all the Internet Browsers that you currently have open, click on the link that was sent to you to sign, and follow the steps to register
How do I register my signature?
Before you can sign an agreement for the first time, you must register as a user. Once registered, you will not be required to complete this process for future agreements.
To register, click on the area to sign. The system will automatically detect you have not yet registered and a new window will appear asking you to complete various information including name, password and a security question. Security questions allow you to retrieve your password if you have forgotten it.
Once you’ve completed the form, click the 'I accept, create my signature' button. You have now registered. Your username will be your email address and your password will be the one you created with this form. If you forget it, you will be able to retrieve it by answering your security question. Please remember to take note of your Security Question and Answer.

To sign, simply click on the area requiring a signature and type in your password.
Once you have signed all areas, a window will appear asking if you'd like to send your response now. Once you click 'FINISH & SEND', the sender of the agreement will automatically be notified of the agreement completion.
