Software and Java™ Security

Copyright in any software that is made available for download from the Site ("Software") belongs to The Bridge Consultancy or its suppliers. Your use of the Software is governed by the terms of any licence agreement that may accompany or be included with the Software. Do not install or use any Software unless you agree to such licence agreement.

The Bridge Consultancy may from time to time give you the option to modify your browser to enable you to access certain requested services along with other applications. In that event, a dialogue box will be shown on your screen requiring your authorisation for the modification to proceed. By clicking the ‘Grant’ button (or equivalent) on the dialogue box, you will allow The Bridge Consultancy to modify your browser to enable you to view the service on your screen at the same time as you work on other applications. The dialogue box may display a ‘high risk’ notice.

The Bridge Consultancy guarantees to you that such modification will only be used to view the requested service with other applications and (if you have clicked on ‘Remember this decision’) to view in a similar way any other service you may specifically request from The Bridge Consultancy in the future.
