Google Docs, Sheets and Slides now allows you stop viewers and commentators from copying, printing and downloading. This means you can make it that little bit harder from someone taking of the your valuable, private information.

Note: if someone can see your document on their computer screen then they can take a screenshot, or copy and paste, to get a copy and there's nothing you can do to prevent this.  These new settings in Google Drive make it harder for someone to get an exact copy but it doesn't make it impossible.
