Shane's explanation: A publisher has several options to manage “user granted exceptions”:


- 100% out of band – allows them to ignore the DNT:1 signal for users who grant the exception but the web browser will not be aware of this

- Mixed – request out of band exceptions from non-DNT users for some set of activities and only use browser user granted exceptions for those users that activate DNT

- 100% browser based – request all user granted exceptions through the browser regardless of the user’s DNT signal (this is the text Nick provided)
