At liberty

To be at liberty to do something means to be free to do it without any restrictions.

Examples:

Some companies keep information about salaries confidential and lower rank managers are not at liberty to discuss them.

This is a free country! I’m at liberty to go wherever I like.

Take note

To take liberties with something or someone means to abuse the right to do something.

Example:

Don’t take liberties with me, Mr Jones! I am a married woman and the only man allowed to kiss me is my husband.
