Access 2010/SharePoint 2010 Hybrid app - prevent users from saving app modifications to server

I have a code-intensive Access 2010/Sharepoint 2010 hybrid app that runs on the client. I see no practical way of preventing a knowledgeable user from opening a local copy in maintenance mode and making design modifications. Is there a way, using permissions or whatever, to prevent changes made by a user from propagating back to the server when the user saves changes? The hybrid approach is perfect for our scenario, so I don't want to use an accde.

Do you want users to not be able to make chnages to the sites? ( i.e. restrict their permissions to Contribute, so that they can only add data but can't change the pages)
Or do you want them to be able to create personal versions of a page whihc don't affect other users? ( -> User personalisation features)

I want to ensure that, if a user manages to open and modify the accdb he opens on the client via the accdw shortcut, the changes he makes locally do not also get saved in the gold copy on the server. Currently when I, as the developer, make and save changes they are saved to the server - I want to ensure that users can't do the same thing.

You can do this by simply giving them Contributor rights. They will be able to addd data but then they can't make any changes to the structure of the site. Normal users should in general not have any more than Contributor rights.

Contributor rights is the answer.
