A contract can't read events: Events are designed for data that doesn't need to be read by a node when it validates a block, which is why they're cheaper than regular storage.

You can store data about users who sent wei to your contract in contract storage, usually by updating a mapping when the contract receives the wei, although this will mean a higher gas cost.

You can restrict access to a get function when it is called as part of a transaction, but be aware that all the information your contract stores is publicly available on the blockchain, so people will still be able to read it even if your function doesn't permit them to.
