You can wrap the code which you want to limit using the current_user_can() function.

if( current_user_can('editor') ) {
    // true if user is an editor

Depending on what you are trying to limit, you can put this conditional around the hook or action that you are adding, or use it to wrap specific functionality within the plugin.
