We are going to implement a SharePoint 2010 farm, but due to some issues, we will not be able to create an account with the necessary privileges to use "User Profile Synchronization Service".

My question is, can we run SharePoint 2010 Standard edition without using the User Profile Synchronization Service? If so, how do we import user profile information?

Thanks in advanced, Dan
