To restrict access to the embedded document, open the ‘Sharing Settings’ window clicking the ‘Share’ button next to the document title in TeamLab Office and select the ‘Deny Access’ option. If you delete or move the document into some other folder, it won’t appear in the document viewer window on your webpage or in the application either.

Note: if you deny access to the document at the 'Embedding Document' tab of the 'Sharing Settings' window, the users with read-only or full access permissions (displayed at the 'Portal Users' tab) will still be able to view the embedded document in case they stay logged in to the TeamLab Office the document is stored at.
