 <p class="note">The term "Permitted Operational Uses" is used to indicate a restricted set of conditions under which tracking is allowed in spite of the user's DNT preference. The term user-granted exception is used when the user has permitted tracking, usually in the form of a site-specific exception, for a given third-party. In general: permitted uses are additional permissions granted by the standard; user-granted exceptions are additional permissions granted by the user. The words "exception" and "exemption" have occasionally been used interchangably and inconsistently by the editors; we are now trying to be consistent in using the terms <strong>"permitted (operational) use"</strong> and <strong>"user-granted exceptions"</strong>.</p>
