Sorry for the late reply, I've been away for a few days.
I have a few questions about the API key. Although it belongs to my
"personal" account, we're actually using it in an open source software
project, and the key is public in the source code. Given that we don't
have any custom ontologies associated with the account, at least at the
moment, and we only use the publicly available ones, should we try to
keep the key private?
