API with non-administrative permissions

Original title: Cannot access API from within site pages if not Administrator.


I have written JavaScript/HTML in a WildApricot site page to display events as a compact list in a table.

If I login to an administrator account it all works fine, if I login to a non administrator account I get error 403 returned from a get Events API call.....

"Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Current token does not provide access to scope 'events_view'.)"

Code snippet is:


function generateTable()
var EventsList = getDataFromApi("$sort=StartDate asc&$filter=Tags in [training,cruising,racing,racing_crew] AND StartDate ge 2017-01-01");

The API documentation here
"Access to Wild Apricot data will be limited by the access permissions of the currently authenticated user. Consequently, the API cannot be accessed within public pages that do not require user authentication."

The page in question is not a public page and the user is logged in (but not as an administrator), why are these API calls resulting in Error 403?
