Proposal: General principle and rules for conflict rather than table
As a general principle, more specific settings override less specific settings, as where the specific consent in user granted exceptions overrides general settings. In the event that a party perceives a conflict between settings, a party may seek clarification from the user or may honor the more restrictive setting.
