Customer’s such as subscription websites, SaaS Platforms, or shopping sites who has their viewer’s information can pass the viewer Email, name and ID (or other types of unique id if privacy is a concern) to have that information available on the Cincopa Analytics and Viewing Reports.

Another example, when you have your own login system and you want to be able to track your users by Name/Email/acc_id on Cincopa analytics can then just add this line of code that set cincopa.analytics.

The user data you set will be sent with every video view to Cincopa, that way later you can access the analytics and search for a view of a specific user.
