How We Score
In order to ensure complete objectivity, we keep our research and financial departments separated at all times. Our teams of researchers and reviewers have zero access to the potential financial repercussions of their work and do not know what kinds of affiliate commissions we receive for certain products. This allows them to remain objective and avoid any type of bias caused by potential financial gains.
When it comes to our rating criteria, they include the scope of the DNA test, test processing times, privacy and security, value for money, and overall experience. Since we are dealing with a number of different DNA testing solutions, our ranking factors are always calibrated to fit the specific requirements of the test in question.
In addition to rating all the essential aspects of every service we review, we also compare it to its top competitors on the market. This allows us to obtain a parallel overview of all competitive products and see how they measure up against each other.
All of our reviews are constantly updated as the companies change their services, so our scores are subject to change as well. Score changes can be caused by the deterioration of the service itself or the introduction of a superior product.
