Default Active directory, change user attributes


I would like to create a tool in C# (windows forms, or asp.net) to edit the user attributes in AD e.g. description, organization, phone number etc.

I have read upon DirectoryServices, and I think this is what I need.

But my question is, what if my user is not an Administrator or some user with privileges to edit this information? Will my program work?

Or should I use some sort of logon first inside my code?

I could not find answers to these questions, seems like everybody assumes we are all administrators.

I hope somebody can give me some info. thanks.
