Individual user permissions

Individual permissions that grant the ability to perform specific actions e.g. View Items to view documents or items in a list.

Permission level

A pre-defined set of permissions that grants users permission to perform related actions.

The default permission levels are: Limited Access, Read, Contribute, Design, and Full Control.

User

A person with a user account that can be authenticated through the authentication method used for the server.

User should be added to a group and groups should have permissions assigned. 

Group

A group of users. Can be a Windows security group (such as Department_A) that you add to the site, or a SharePoint group such as Site Owners, Site Members, or Site Visitors.

Group permissions can be changed any time.

Securable object   

Users or groups are assigned a permission level for a specific securable object: site, list, library, folder, document, or item. By default, permissions for a list, library, folder, document, or item are inherited from the parent site or parent list or library. However, anyone assigned a permission level for a particular securable object that includes the Manage Permissions permission can change the permissions for that securable object.
