> /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences (or ~/Library/Preferences)

This is where preferences are stored for each individual user account, that apply to that individual account only

> /Library/Preferences

Here are preferences stored, that apply to all user accounts

Please let us know if you need more clarification on this!
