Ah, so now we have 3 possibilities:

1) Rigo, Shane and I:

exemption -- the rule/specification as a whole doesn't generally apply to you
exception  -- the specification applies, but you can claim some limited carve-outs (exceptions)

(Shane: 1st parties are generally exempt; other carve-outs define more limited exceptions)

2) Jonathan, as I understand it:

exemption -- the user *grants* exemptions
exception  -- the site/service may *claim* a (limited) exception

3) Vincent, as I understand it, has it exactly the other way:

exemption -- an authorized use of data collected, a carve-out
exception  -- a user grants exceptions

we await more possibilities (specially from Aleecia !)...
