Act 2008 - Restrict ability to export data from database

We have a new set of sales engineers starting who will be working in the field and unfortunately experience shows that we need to restrict their ability to extract data from our  database. We''ve recently moved to Act from MS CRM and find the product great however although I  Ihave tried the permissions however can't seem to locate this specifi type of permission.
 
Can anyone tell me how I can do this for each different user?
 
Thanks

Hi D,
 
In Tools->Manage Users you can specify that users can not Export to Excel. You also may need to ensure that they do not have the ability to carry out Remote Administration and/or synch with handhelds.

Unfortunately, there are a number of ways of getting at the data that you really can't prevent if a user knows what they're doing
