    Default restricted/bound to

    For purpose of privacy protection, access to the client database is strictly restricted/bound to authorized personnel.


    The correct word, I strongly believe, is restricted.


    Am I correct?


    Many thanks.

    Are those your only choices? I'd go with "limited." Otherwise, "restricted" is better.

    ''BOUND'' cannot be used in that form anyway. BOUNDED, on the other hand, can.
    Go with restricted (you may want to ommit ''strictly'')!
    Or maybe, FORBIDDEN will fit.
