Everand and SlideShare users' subscriptions will also be processed by Scribd, Inc.

If you see a transaction from Scribd upon starting your free trial, don’t worry!

If you’re within your free trial period and have a question about a transaction that isn’t listed as “TEMPORARY”, please don’t hesitate in contacting our support team for assistance.
