Perhaps one addition, written form is being defined in Civil Code as

Section 40(4) 
The written form shall be kept if the legal act is done by telegraph,
teleprinter or electronic means that allow picking up of its content and
determining of the acting person.

Bad translation of the Act, but is suppose to mean that also electronic
means satisfy written form provided that the content is capable of being
preserved and that it is possible to determine the person acting.
