Thank you for the clarification. However, some may argue that simply sending the API Key as part of the HTTP Request Header should sufficiently be better than as part of the query parameter. Additionally, all your endpoints are just GET requests anyways?

Don't understand, the API key must be sent as HTTP Request header, not as query parameter.

Yes they are. It's about misuse prevention, you don't want your API key blocked if somebody uses it in dubious ways. And exposing it on the client takes this risk.
