|A judicial seal is carried out by a judicial police officer, a sworn person who carries out the sealing. DIGIPROOF performs some of these functions thanks to blockchain technologies which make it possible to perform several digital fingerprints of sealed files and information relating to this seal; while associating a certain date, as well as the geolocation of the place where the seal was made. This procedure prevents any subsequent modification and thus makes the sealed file tamper-proof. In the event of legal proceedings, the magistrates will be certain that the file they consult is indeed the one which has been sealed with a certain date. The seal keys are deposited with a Notary, to give the DIGIPROOF seal the scope of an authentic deed.

In the same way, I rent a vehicle I can also perform a video seal when I pick up and return the vehicle. It is inexpensive (often less than one euro) and it is very effective. Video seals can be used when renting apartments, renting equipment, etc.Invoice, guarantees, general conditions of sale, administrative ... I save my invoices so that I can find them easily in the event of a problem.
