This check is necessary because of the requirements of the browser vendors (Microsoft, Mozilla). This ensures that only you can get your email address as the owner of a signature card that contains this email address.
By sending an email, the verification of the address which should be included in the certificate occurs. This e-mail contains an eight-digit security code which you have to write manually on your PKS order. If we receive your order without the security code, we produce a signature card without an email address.
A later submit of your address on a signature card is not possible. If you subsequently need to register your email address, you have to order a chargeable replacement card according to our price list.
