USER GROUP DEFINITIONS: 

A user group is a specific set of rights within your DistributorCentral account. The account administrator is responsible for giving everyone in their company access to DistributorCentral, but not everyone may need to see the same things. For example, if someone’s only task is designing and maintaining the company website, that person may be assigned to the Website Administrator user group. You can also create your own customer User Groups as well.
