What is the value of the Electronic Recommended?
According to Article 1369-8 of the Civil Code, supplemented by Article 4 of Decree 2011-144 of February 2, 2011, concerning the sending of a registered letter by e-mail for the conclusion or execution of a Contract, the electronic registration has the same legal value as a registered paper.
The sending of a registered letter online is evidenced by a proof of time-stamped deposit. This proof of deposit also guarantees the content of the shipment, by a principle of electronic imprint operated by La Poste. It is therefore impossible for the recipient to declare that he has received only an empty envelope!
Finally, the mail and proof of deposit are digitized and archived. Convenient to locate documents in case of dispute with the recipient.
