Welcome to the Notary
Now you can sign documents securely in Second Life. Notarizing guarantees everyone agreed to the same thing, and gives you a verifiable receipt with the signatures and original document.
When people need to make sure they agree, a notarized document ensures they do:
- Building Contracts
- Employment Agreements
- Agreements Between friends
- Land Leases
When you need to demonstrate your sincere intention, a notarized document shows you are earnest:
- Oaths of Office
- Group Statements
- Neighbor Policies
Notarizations are protected against any tampering. You always show exactly which text you signed, who signed it, and when. No one (not even a Linden or the notary itself) can alter a notarization without detection. And, the notary log book is kept off-world as added protection.
Nota Bene offers a fully automated system for notarizing signatures on documents, and later verifying them. The service is inexpensive and available to everyone with no signup procedures, accounts or other personal information. Just walk up and use it!
Nota Bene employs modern, cryptographic techniques for ensuring the integrity of its notarizations and communications. All protocols use publicly available algorithms. The notarizations use RSA public-key encryption with 2048 bit keys, and can be independently verified.
The SL Mediators group offers dispute resolution services to the Second Life community. Mediation can easily be incorporated into your agreements and contracts with simple language available at the notary from SL Mediators.
