  1. Did anyone explain why you were not able to view the contract after providing an electronic signature?

    An electronic contract is a document that is created, transmitted and

    signed, all in electronic form. In addition, "clickwrap" or "clickthrough" contracts are

    another form of an electronic contract. These contracts are typically

    found in user agreements attached to software. The user of the software

    must click "I Agree" at the end of the user agreement before the

    software license becomes official and the software becomes usable.(FindLaw)

    Generally, contracts with electronic signatures are regarded as just as valid and enforceable as other contracts. Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) is a federal law regarding this topic and should be a good starting point to your research.
