Footnote 13

In U.C.C. Art. 2B (May 3, 1996 Draft), "Record" is defined by § 2B-102(30) as "information that is inscribed on a tangible medium or that is stored in an electronic or other medium and is retrievable in perceivable form.." See also, Model Law on Electronic Commerce, United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), 29th Sess., art. 7(1), at 3, U.N. Doc. A/CN.9/XXIX/CRP.1/Add.13 (1996) ("Where a law requires a signature of a person, that requirement is met in relation to a data message if: (a) a method is used to identify that person and to indicate that person's approval of the information contained in the data message...."). Throughout these Guidelines "message" means the digital representation of information (generally, computer-based information), "document" means information inscribed on a tangible medium (generally paper-based information), and "record" can be used to refer to a message or to a document, consistent with the definition of "record" in U.C.C. § 2B-102(30), supra, this footnote.
