This is done via a unique API-ID and a private API-KEY (Similar to a username and password) that you will need in order to authenticate your requests. To avoid misuse and additionally to segmentate the various "robots", "spiders" and other automated systems accessing the API, you are requested to manipulate the "User_Agent" you are sending with your requests...
