You can set permissions on your shared calendar based on 2 levels:
View permission allows shared users to view the shared calendar and its events/tasks, but cannot change any information. It means that the shared users cannot add/edit/delete events or tasks, or edit, import and export the shared calendar.
Edit permission allows shared users to view, import and export the shared calendar or add, edit, delete events/tasks inside the shared calendar. However, you cannot edit detailed information of a shared calendar, such as its display name.
