Electronic Transactions

ORS 84.013
Use of electronic records and electronic signatures

  • variation by agreement


(1)

ORS 84.001 (Short title) to 84.061 (Federal electronic signatures law partially superseded) do not require a record or signature to be created, generated, sent, communicated, received, stored or otherwise processed or used by electronic means or in electronic form.

(2)

ORS 84.001 (Short title) to 84.061 (Federal electronic signatures law partially superseded) apply only to transactions between parties, each of which has agreed to conduct transactions by electronic means. Whether the parties agree to conduct a transaction by electronic means is determined from the context and surrounding circumstances, including the parties’ conduct.

(3)

A party that agrees to conduct a transaction by electronic means may refuse to conduct other transactions by electronic means. The right granted by this subsection may not be waived by agreement.

(4)

Except as otherwise provided in ORS 84.001 (Short title) to 84.061 (Federal electronic signatures law partially superseded), the effect of any provision of ORS 84.001 (Short title) to 84.061 (Federal electronic signatures law partially superseded) may be varied by agreement. The presence in certain provisions of ORS 84.001 (Short title) to 84.061 (Federal electronic signatures law partially superseded) of the words “unless otherwise agreed,” or words of similar import, does not imply that the effect of other provisions of ORS 84.001 (Short title) to 84.061 (Federal electronic signatures law partially superseded) may not be varied by agreement.

(5)

Whether an electronic record or electronic signature has legal consequences is determined by ORS 84.001 (Short title) to 84.061 (Federal electronic signatures law partially superseded) and other applicable law. [2001 c.535 §5]
