including a showing of the efficacy of any security procedure applied to

determine the person to which the electronic record or electronic signature was

attributable.

(b) The effect

of an electronic record or electronic signature attributed to a person under

circumstances at the time of its creation, execution, or adoption, including

the parties' agreement, if any, and otherwise as provided by law. (Added 2003,
