The Sapience Group of brands where possible use eSignatures (electronic signatures) to save our clients time and preserve their privacy and our eSignature platform is managed by DocuSign. Electronic Signatures have been recognised by law in Australia since 1999, with the passage of the Electronic Transactions Act.
Under Australian law, a written signature (often called an ink on paper or wet signature), is not necessarily required for a valid contract. Documents and contracts are generally valid if legally competent parties reach an agreement, whether they agree verbally, electronically or in a physical paper document. The Electronic Transactions Acts in the Commonwealth, States and Territories of Australia specifically confirm that provided certain requirements are met, and a relevant exception does not apply, contracts cannot be denied enforceability merely because they are concluded electronically.
The Sapience Group of Brands recognises that individuals may identify and be recognised within the community as a gender other than the sex they were assigned at birth or during infancy, or as a gender which is not exclusively male or female. Where sex and/or gender information is collected and recorded in a personal record, individuals are given the option to select M (male), F (female) or X (Indeterminate/Intersex/Unspecified).
The X category refers to any person who does not exclusively identify as either male or female, i.e. a person of a non-binary gender. People who fall into this category may use a variety of terms to self-identify. This classification system is consistent with the Australian Government passports policy for applicants who are sex and gender diverse and Australian Standard AS4590 – Interchange of client information and complies with the Australian Government Guidelines on the Recognition of Sex and Gender July 2013.
Sapience holds a number of professional memberships.
