Terms: Site, app, product

I'm not clear on the difference between these terms:

Jira site

Jira application

Jira product

Are they interchangeable? They're mentioned in the ACP-120 materials, though not defined.

A Jira site is a web site being provided by the Jira application, which is a Product of Atlassian.

There are many many many Jira sites, each backed by a Jira application application instance, but there's only really two Jira products - Jira Server/DC and Jira Cloud.

To complicate things, Atlassian have chosen the word "application" for structural additions to Jira, currently being Jira Software and Jira Service Desk, so there's six "applications" effectively Jira Core, JSD and Software, each having a Serer/DC and Cloud version.
