Because we want to be as transparent as possible and want to prevent any misunderstanding in the future, we provide answers to the frequently asked questions you may have about us. Just check below whether your question has already been answered. If not, email us your question and we will try to answer it as soon as possible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs) ABOUT DIETBLY

FAQ #1: Who is Christine Derrel? She does not seem too real to me.

Actually, you are right. As you may have already noticed, Christine Derrel is just a pen name. Such person does not really exist. We have created this “persona” out of gratitude to a person (friend) who motivated us to start this project in the first place.

The profile picture is just a stock photo of a generic woman.

FAQ #2: So, who is really behind this website?

Well, I want to be honest with you. This website was registered and is operated by Auria, s.r.o. – a company that is registered and headquartered in the Slovak Republic (Bratislava).

FAQ #3: Are all of your articles 100% factually correct?

The weight loss niche, in general, is (like many others) ever changing and evolving. This is even more true with regards to individual products. Producing companies frequently change the facts about various products and we have problems to keep up to date with these changes as we are just a small team of few people.

However, we are trying to maintain the content of this website the best we can.

If you have noticed that any of our articles or reviews is factually wrong or is not up-to-date with the actual reality, please do not hesitate to contact us at contact(at)dietbly.com and we will recheck those facts as soon as possible. If the product information has really changed, we are happy to edit our article and reassess given product review according to new facts.

FAQ #4: This site is just another affiliate review platform that pushes specific product and not an impartial informational weight loss website, isn´t it?

We have experienced some situations where people, usually owners of various weight loss products, have complained to us that we are not an impartial website. They often complain and accuse us that we are just another affiliate review website that pushes specific weight loss products.

Let me assure you that this website was set up as a place to get free information about following a healthier lifestyle and losing weight.

Obviously, as one dwells into the topic of weight loss, he comes over various products, diets, and machines as well. Some are better, some are worse, and some are just a complete waste of your money.

That is why we have decided to provide product reviews. While we do receive commission for several products we review, this does not affect our judgement whether to approve any product or not.

We always try to rank products objectively based on our criteria (available soon). So if any product does not meet our criteria, it gets lower rating even if we could theoretically push it up to earn more commissions.

This is something we categorically refuse to do as it goes against all our values and the main goal of this website – to provide help to people who want to live a healthier lifestyle and lose some weight at the same time.

FAQ #5: Do you accept ads on your website? Can I place one here?

Let me stop you right here. No, we do not allow any paid adverts on this website. There are many platforms that provide ads-displaying system we could theoretically sign up for. However, we would have no control of what will be displayed on these ads and this is something we do not like.

FAQ #6: So why some products have better rating than others?

As it is mentioned elsewhere in these FAQs, we are reviewing products according to several criteria (will be published soon). Some are universal for each and every product while others are specific for each group of products.

FAQ #7: You own or have financial interest in at least some of the products you write about, don´t you?

We can proudly say that we do not own or have any financial interest in any of the products we review on our website. However, as stated in other FAQs, we do receive a commission for several products reviewed on this website (see our disclaimer).

Although this fact might be theoretically a source of bias, we try to minimize/eliminate it completely by providing the rating of our products based on specific criteria (available soon).

We always try to be as honest and transparent with our readers as possible. This website is independently owned and operated by a company headquartered and registered in the Slovak Republic (the main focus of our business is providing translating services).

All this information should give any consumer the full knowledge they need to make an informed decision.

FAQ #8: If it creates a potential for bias, why do you need to earn commissions at all?

This is an excellent question you should always ask yourself. The answer is rather simple. Initially, we wanted to deal only with tips and tricks and wanted to avoid reviews of any products whatsoever.

However, running costs of this website went higher and we need to earn a living as well (we are not talking about domain registration and hosting, these are not that costly).

Not only we have to put a huge amount of our time into our business in Slovakia, researching topics and writing detailed articles and product analyses for this website take extreme effort as well. We also need to pay for proofreading and article writing services as we are not English native speakers.

FAQ #9: Hey, I am a merchant and have great product. Could you take a look at it?

We accept any suggestions for great products to add on this website. The best part? You do not need to pay us anything. We do not even require commissions from you.

Simply, if your product meets our criteria and looks promising, then we will be happy to publish our review of it. However, because doing research on any product takes a lot of time we can not give you any specific time-frame nor guarantee that it will go live anytime soon.

Just keep in mind that interest of our readers comes first so do not bother contacting us if your product does not deliver on its promises.

FAQ #10: I have submitted a comment on your article but it has not appeared. Are you filtering comments of your website?

Sadly, because we receive a lot of spam comments (sometimes even vulgar ones) we need to moderate your comment first before it comes live. If it is spam or includes any commercial or vulgar content, we will not approve it.

However, we do not filter any opinions we receive in our comments (not positive nor even negative ones). However, these comments are usually submitted anonymously and it is not in our possibilities to verify each end every information they include.

That is why we advise our readers to take comments published on our website (even if they are positive or negative) with a grain of salt and always try to verify the information you receive. Rather be critical than sorry.

FAQ #11: I have bought a product and I want my money back!

Sadly, because we do not own any of the products reviewed on this website we can not help you in this manner personally. However, we always try to give you advice on how you could claim your money back.

The best way that often works is to contact the manufacturer directly (through their individual support system) and if they stand behind their product, they should issue a refund for you.

Just pay attention when making your purchase as some products offer a money back guarantee only if you meet certain criteria or conditions (in our reviews we try to cover these as well).

FAQ #12: When you write a product review, does that mean you have actually purchased that product?

Usually, product reviews we write are based solely on information that is publicly available on the internet. However, there are some products that we have personally purchased.

If this is the case, we point that fact in a related review. Although we would love to increase the number of reviewed products that we have purchased as well, it is beyond our possibilities to get our hands on each and every product we write about.

FAQ #13: What is the relationship between Dietbly.com and SkinnyWithFiber.org?

This website (DIETBLY.COM) is a successor of an older domain SkinnyWithFiber.org. We have decided to change and rename it as the old domain was frequently confused by our readers and other visitors for an official website of a specific weight loss product. The similarity in names created many confusing situations that we would love to avoid in the future.
