At present, a great majority of relationships, both personal, professional and commercial, are developed by electronic means, what the law knows as “telematic means”; media, which can range from a WhatsApp message and other similar applications, through messaging on other social networks, to formal emails in the field of business; among other means.
Muchas veces, la evidencia de dichas relaciones, se encuentra respaldada únicamente, en nuestros teléfonos, correos electrónicos, ordenadores y archivos digitales; es decir, dicha información no está respaldada en un elemento material y físico (dígase una pieza de papel) sino en los sistemas de información, de forma “desmaterializada”.
The law requires a specific procedure to give procedural validity to these electronic media. For your digital information to be valid before public authorities, you must do the following:
- Step 1:Collect and locate all the information that you consider relevant to what you need to prove.
- Step 2:Bring that information to the knowledge of your trusted lawyer, so that he, from a technical point of view, decides that it is useful for his strategy and that it should be discarded.
- Step 3: Once the pertinent information has been selected, you must visit any Authorized Public Notary, from any canton, and request the procedure called "Materialization of electronic document”; The notary and his collaborators will guide you in each step, you do not need a lawyer for this procedure.
- Step 4: The notary will review the digital source of the information (your email, your laptop, your cell phone) and will verify that the information is real and reliable and will issue the certification in a physical and materialized manner; the process is quick, simple and inexpensive ($ 1.50 per page, approximately).
With the document certified by a notary public, it can be used to prove any fact, before any authority.
