There's no really good way to do this that someone with a little tech savvy can't work around by using screenshots, copy and paste, and a variety of other tools.

However, here's one option to prevent saving by making a simple macro:

Here is another for disabling printing:

Just keep in mind that anyone can turn on the "disable all macros" option and then none of this works.
