    Can the private encryption key be used with the API interface and an app that grabs the data?

    Yes, it should work Chris, but in that case you would need to be the one that does the decryption feature, since all that you can get from our side is encrypted content.

    So you would never actually send the API key to our servers, but instead grab the data and then decrypt it on your side.
