Such payment services are subject to the Hyperwallet Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy available at https://www.hyperwallet.com/agreements-terms and https://www.hyperwallet.com/agreements-privacy which you will be required to agree to when creating your Hyperwallet account (“Wallet”).

For certain payment methods, this period may be extended due to risk or settlement times.
