Notice: Some http user agents are now banned (API/web)

In order to mitigate API and website scraping from robots/scripts/crawlers which impact our service a number of standard crawler and robot user agents have now been banned. These user agents will currently return a 403 Unauthorised page.

If you believe your API call should be allowed or you are technically unable to set your user agent to a custom value, please specify your User Agent here.

All regular API users must register for an API key (openchargemap.org - > my profile > my apps > register an application) and specify the key as either a url query parameter or an X-API-Key header. We are not currently enforcing this but we eventually will.
