Frequently asked questions
Q: Is Lexigogo free?
A: Yes, today Lexigogo is 100 percent free.
Q: Are video contracts enforceable by law?
A: Yes. That’s because Lexigogo video contracts are electronic documents signed with electronic signatures. According to most national and regional laws (including in the United States, European Union, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Russia, China and India), electronic signatures cannot be denied legal effect in court and are therefore legally binding for almost every personal or business transaction.

Q: Why do I have to provide personal details, such as my address and phone number?
Q: Will my personal contact details be visible to all users?
A: No, your personal details will only be visible to users with whom you are connected (see below). For more information on your profile and contact details, check out video 6 in our how-to tutorial series.
Q: Can I be registered and hide my profile from other users?
A: Yes, in your profile settings, you have the option to hide your profile from the public. For more information on how to hide yourself, see video 6 in our how-to tutorial series.
Q: What do I have to do in case of any conflict arising from an effective video contract?
A: As with any other handwritten or verbal agreement, we recommend to first find a solution in an amicable way. In most cases, reviewing the content of the video contract will provide sufficient proof and clarity to prevent misunderstandings or conflict escalation. If you are not able to resolve the situation amicably, we recommend you contacting a lawyer or legal expert.
Q: Can I connect with other users before making a video contract?
A: Yes, and we generally recommend to first connect with the second party as this will allow you to see and verify his or her full contact details before the actual filming of the video contract. To connect with another user, simply go to Your Connections, tap the + icon (add new connection) in the bottom right corner and then search for and select the other party by email, first name or last name. For more information on how to connect with other users, see video 2 in our how-to tutorial series.
Q: Can I make a contract with a person who is not a registered user?
A: Yes, but we generally recommend you first ask that person to register and connect with you. However, in some instances, the second party may not be able to register at the time of video contract creation (for example, there is no network access). In that case, the registered party can create the video contract by tapping the + icon (create new contract) on the home screen, record the video contract proposal and select the second party by typing his or her email to invite that person to join Lexigogo. The second party will then receive an email with an invitation to join Lexigogo along with your contract proposal.
Q: How do I make a good quality video?
A: In addition to including all essential elements to make a video contract legally binding and enforceable, it is also important to capture a video of sufficient quality to avoid poor visuals, sound and uncertainty. Click here for tips to help you make quality video contracts.
Q: What should I use as a cover photo to represent my video contract?
A: Simply take a picture of the relevant person, place or thing with your smartphone or select a photo from your gallery. Alternatively, you can also use a photo from a free stock provider such as Unsplash.com or Pexels.com.
