Preventing user from downloading csv of account

Hello,

 

I was wondering if there is an option to prevent users with read-only access from downloading account data in csv format. I offer clients a free campaign build when signing up but I am concerned they might simply download the account once they have access. If there is a way of allowing them to view the account only I'd like to know how.

 

Thanks!

Why would that be a problem, and why do the account owners have read only access?

There are no fine-grained controls in access, as far as I know.

The solution I ended up using is data studio; I provide a dashboard with the metrics and data I want the client to view only.

Really? Well, I guess that's why you're not a certified partner...
