Remote Online Notarization (RON) should not be confused with remote ink-signed notarization (RIN).
RIN is also sometimes known as audiovisual notarization (AVN). With RIN, the Signer and the Notary also meet virtually. However, they are completing paper documents in ink while on two-way audiovisual technology.
RON by industry definition requires the use of an eNotarization solution that meets state and industry identity validation standards, RIN may occur using any two-way audiovisual technology and may not require multi factor user ID verification. Via online video, the Notary typically examines the Signer’s ID and witnesses the signing of the document. It is common for the Notary to contemporaneously (at the same time while on the audio-visual) complete the acknowledgment. This requirement and acknowledgment/wetsign/mailing workflow in RIN may vary from state to state.
At this time, Snapdocs only supports RON transactions.
