A document or signature cannot be denied legal effect or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form.  You agree that no external certification authority or other third party verification is necessary to validate your Electronic Signature with Hyperion and that the lack of such certification or third party verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of your Electronic Signature or any resulting Agreement between you and Hyperion.
