Share level permissions are applied over the network.
Share level permissions are not applied on the local machine where the resource is existing.
There are three types of share level permissions

An access control list (ACL) is an ordered list of access control entries (ACEs) that define the protections that apply to an object and its properties. Each ACE identifies a security principal and specifies a set of access rights allowed, denied, or audited for that security principal.
