    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.

    Re: restricted/bound to

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

    Re: restricted/bound to

    ''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.
