I've seen both delegator and delegatee used interchangeably and it always leaves me ambivalent to which is correct.

It would be nice if some could point out the difference, and an example would also be appreciated.

I suppose delegator is a thing or person that delegates something. And delegatee is to whom something is delegated. Delegator is a source and delegatee is a target.
