The State of California does not recognize video conferencing as a substitution for personal appearance at this time. AYIN International, Inc. has chosen to be headquartered in California and the climate is hostile to our product offering which speaks directly to the resolve of our company to take on the challenges of understanding the sensitive nature in modifying a 4000 year old practice of witnessing which is known today as notarization.
Many Notaries have been duped into thinking that remote electronic notarization is going to eliminate them. Unfortunately they are misinformed. Remote electronic notarization simply allows notaries to enter the vast area of cyberspace to perform their duly sworn task.
Many government authorities and notary organizations have polluted this evolving Eco system for remote electronic notarization suggesting increase fraud and even have commented that notaries today do not have the capacity to use new technology which will allow such a transaction.
The fact is that there are very few notaries who make living performing notarial services. The fact is that today people use the internet all day long to do business and electronically sign sensitive documents which are not denied legal validity. What is mind boggling is that there is acceptance of an electronically signed document but we do not want to see who electronically signs the document nor do we want a witness to watch the electronic signing of the document. While at the same time the suggestion of fraud and identity theft is put forth as a detractive talking point against remote electronic notarization.
AYIN International, Inc. has the only patented method in the United States which provides a secure and viable method allowing Notaries Public to meet with a signer on-line in real-time in a video-conferencing theater which records the notarization capturing biometric particulars such as facial and voice data for subsequent identification and verification of a signer along with many electronic document security protocols for authentication of electronic signatures. We are developing Electronic journals for Notaries to record and maintain their transactions which via personal pin number are access from our secured network.
Imagine being summons to appear in court to produce your journal in testifying to a signing. Today many Notaries do not maintain accurate journal. Our solution automatically enters the notary’s transaction into their electronic journal along with the recorded videoconference of the transaction. In the event a Notary is summons to court to present their electronic journal the notary may simply use their personal pin number, access the transaction in question and show the recorded video of the transaction to the court as admissible evidence of the signing or obvious fraud.
This is real time remote electronic notarization at its best and at AYIN International, Inc. we are working hard to bring it to those who are willing and able to use this exciting new technology. We do not seek to replace the time honored practice of personal appearance in a notarization. Remote electronic notarization honors personal appearance notarization in cyberspace where many people are doing business at this time with the services of duly sworn Notaries Public. Notaries are needed in cyberspace and we are doing our best to make sure they have the tools they will need to do their duties.
