From now to beyond – qualified timestamping with GLOBALTRUST
Timestamps link an electronic document with authentic and secure time designation. The timestamp guarantees the existence of the document at the designated point in time and preserves its condition – it proves in a legally secure manner that the document has not been tampered with since then. Only qualified time stamps issued by an independent, recognized body in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 910/2014 (“eIDAS”) guarantee audit-proof evidence. Even in the event of a dispute in court, and throughout the EU. More and more companies are protecting their intellectual property with a time stamp, can clearly clarify priority issues or secure their business correspondence.

Can I create qualified signatures with a timestamp?
No, a timestamp is a “time signature” that proves the exact time at which a document was present. At the same time, an intact time signature proves that the document has not been changed after it was attached (integrity).
The timestamp, however, does not indicate where or from whom a document originated (authenticity), nor does it express agreement with the document content (“content commitment”). These functions can only be covered with the help of (qualified) electronic signatures and seals. Here we have created a brief overview.
What happens if I need more or less than the ordered timestamps?
Unused time stamps expire at the end of the year. If your volume is higher than expected, you can increase the quota at any time or arrange automatic orders for additional quotas.
Our employee who used to manage the time stamps is leaving us - what to do?
The time stamp service does not work on a person-specific basis. The time stamp account can therefore of course continue to be used within the framework of the previous agreement.
Where are the hidden costs?
There are none. You only pay the package price. If you purchase our services through one of our partners with their software, setup, license or other costs may apply there.
