When we register a signature in Penneo, the system ensures that the time that the signature took place is recorded.
Penneo uses UTC time, and therefore you might notice that the time may be different from the time zone in which you are located. We use UTC time to have an easy and simple way to support times wherever in the world the signer is located.
Thus, when the signature is registered, you can calculate when it has been posted in your own timezone or the timezone the signer is located in.
About UTC time
Coordinated Universal Time abbreviated to UTC, is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. For most purposes, UTC is considered interchangeable with Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), but GMT is no longer precisely defined by the scientific community.
Current civil time in a particular time zone can be determined by adding or subtracting the number of hours and minutes specified by the UTC offset, which ranges from UTC-12:00 in the west to UTC+14:00 in the east. In Denmark, the introduction of Central European Time and Time is set as UTC + 1 at zone time and as UTC + 2 at daylight saving time.
