(5 ILCS 175/10-120)
    Sec. 10-120. Presumptions.
    (a) In resolving a civil dispute involving a secure electronic record, it shall be rebuttably presumed that the electronic record has not been altered since the specific point in time to which the secure status relates.
    (b) In resolving a civil dispute involving a secure electronic signature, it shall be rebuttably presumed that the secure electronic signature is the signature of the person to whom it correlates.
    (c) The effect of presumptions provided in this Section is to place on the party challenging the integrity of a secure electronic record or challenging the genuineness of a secure electronic signature both the burden of going forward with evidence to rebut the presumption and the burden of persuading the trier of fact that the nonexistence of the presumed fact is more probable than its existence.
    (d) In the absence of a secure electronic record or a secure electronic signature, nothing in this Act shall change existing rules regarding legal or evidentiary rules regarding the burden of proving the authenticity and integrity of an electronic record or an electronic signature.
