Which are the differences between user accounts?

Our GPS Tracking Software offers different account privileges, with the most common types of accounts being user and viewer. The difference between these two accounts is that the viewer account is a user which can only see results without the possibility to do any changes to his account. Like it is mentioned in its name, it is a viewing only account.

The user account, on the other hand, is a regular user with the possibility to manage his own account. A user account can create events, create new zones, edit the details of his objects and various other tasks!
