In layman's terms, White Hat SEO covers techniques that are in line with search engine's terms and rules. Black Hat SEO covers techniques that are not favorable to search engines. These techniques can get you banned. The Grey Hat SEO on the other hand, is a combination of the white and black hat techniques. Still, grey hat for me is black hat SEO. We only practice and recommend white hat techniques in Affilorama. You can get your free SEO tutorials here.
