If you’re still signing your contracts made from trees, I’ve got news for you. There is a faster, more convenient, eco-friendly way. It’s secure and private. It’s legally binding. Best of all, FREE. It’s Docracy.
Docracy provides open source legal documents to the public for free.
Are you a Freelance Photographer? Designer? Landlord? Small business?
You name it, there is probably a document out there for your needs. You can even request a document. Not comfortable with using open source documents? Upload your own, or ask a lawyer to review the one you’ve chosen for your project. Either way you still save money, and time too.
Where do these open source documents come from? Lawyers, organizations, and people around the world submit their legal agreements to Docracy. From there you can privately edit and electronically sign them for free!
So what can Docracy provide?
- Common personal legal documents (like splitting rent or giving someone power of attorney)
- Common small & medium business legal documents (like independent contractor agreements, hiring contracts)
- Freelancing and Creative Professional Agreements
- You can also track of changes to Terms of Service and privacy policies on hundreds of popular websites
Not to mention they have a fabulous blog, too with plenty of helpful tips and advice
By far the best feature is Super Signing. It is the simplest and clearest way for every party to come to an agreement. Everyone is kept up to date with changes to the document. The other party wants their lawyer to take a look? No problem. Once complete, all parties involved will be emailed the signed PDF.
Check out this quick video on Super Signing and how much easier it makes the signing and negotiating:
Quick note: Docracy documents and super-signing are also legally binding in Canada, too. Durham AV Group is a Canadian company. The nice thing about doing business online is that we can meet new clients from all over the world. We like to keep things as streamlined and simple as possible when working on projects. Keep in mind the laws change based on where you live, so it might be a good idea to have a nice lawyer friend to at least check your documents for you if you don’t know the laws pertaining to where you reside.
Legal text can be confusing and hard to interpret, and lawyers are expensive! (Nothing against lawyers – there’s Docracy for Lawyers too!!)
