Hi @Philip Lusher 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!!

I'm afraid since this is Cloud this feature is not yet present, there's a request to have this feature

Here's the ref link

And a community thread

As of now, we cannot restrict users from exporting the pages from both word or pdf format if they have view permission

This is the KB link for DC

Add this to the list of many reasons I don't recommend Cloud. So many removed features versus server/data center.

@Philip Lusher Welcome to the Atlassian Community

In cloud, you can only prevent the exporting of a space.  If an individual can see a page then they will be able to export it to Word or PDF.  There is a feature request that has been out there for some time to restrict export at the page level.  I would suggest voting for it and following it so you receive updates.

@Philip Lusher - You are welcome.  If you can accept the answer this will help others that have the same question.
