SharePoint allows you to create a personalized version of a web part page.  This means you can add/remove web parts or modify some web part properties that allow personalization changes.

Clear the options “Add/Remove Personal Web Parts” and “Update Personal Web Parts”, to prevent the user personalizing the web part page.
