What makes a snatch a power snatch or a regular snatch ?

I understand that with the power snatch you don't squat below parallel with it, as far as I know, but when you are snatching with something relatively light, that doesn't require the full squat, though you are not intentionally doing power snatches, is it a power snatch or a snatch ? Or is it required that you break parallel in the squat for it to be considered a snatch and not a power snatch ? I know it doesn't matter all that much, and i couldn't find the answer by searching so, any clarification would be appreciated.
