  • OUR SERVICE

    The Stavvy platform is an Internet-based, remote electronic notarization service (the “Service”). It allows users to notarize a document in compliance with applicable United States laws, including legislation from various states and jurisdictions which allow notaries to legally notarize any signature via remote online notarization technology, and United States federal and state legislation that provides that electronic records and signatures carry the same weight and legal effect as traditional paper documents and handwritten signatures.

    The Website includes instructions for accessing the Service and completing a transaction, which may include one or more of the following steps: (i) you provide requested biographical information; (ii) you create a unique password; (iii) you respond to a series of questions that allows us to confirm your identity; (iv) you upload a scanned copy of the document that you wish to notarize; (v) you follow the instructions on the site to interact with a live notary; (vi) you engage in an on-line, recorded video chat with the notary, during which time he or she will ask questions, review your identification, witness your signature, then provide a notarial seal; (vii) you pay the required fee; and (viii) you download the notarized document.
    In the event that your identity cannot be confirmed, or you are unable or unwilling to complete the process to properly notarize your document, or the live notary determines, in his or her sole discretion, not to proceed with the notarial process, your session will be terminated.

    STAVVY, INC. DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL SERVICES OR ADVICE AND DOES NOT AND WILL NOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE OR ACCEPT FEES FOR LEGAL ADVICE.
