I've been trying to keep this straight and failing because the words are too similar and hash to the same bucket in my brain. I don't so much care what we use (and we can always change again later) but would put in a huge vote for make one start with something other than ex* 

From the second f2f in Santa Clara, I believe we had agreed upon:
	Exceptions: ways in which third parties might still collect and/or use data. For example, "Sample corporation collected this data and they use it only for fraud prevention, as per the fraud exception." 
	Exemptions: sites that a user has allowed to track them, specifically. We used this word to get away from saying "opt back in," which gets into all sorts of international complications and is not so great as terminology. For example, "The user turned on Do Not Track globally, but ExampleCo has a site-specific exemption." 

I *think* I have it the right way around here. I'd be delighted to have more dissimilar terms for these two things.
