If you run across hate speech, pornographic material, or spam, or if someone is harassing you, we want to know about it! None of that is allowed on Scribd, Inc.’s websites or apps, and we encourage you to let us know about any violations of this nature by flagging them. We regularly review flagged documents and remove those that violate our Terms of Use. Please let us know about material that shouldn't be up on the site.

Egregious violations of U.S. law (such as child pornography) should be immediately and directly reported to our customer support team.
