All submissions of Your Components for listing on the RightScale Component Library must be made through our online submission process.
4.2 Security Review. We may conduct a security review of Your Component, which may include a qualitative assessment involving a questionnaire for You to complete, an interview with You, and security testing, which We may conduct ourselves or through a third party. You agree to cooperate reasonably in any such review and/or testing at Your own expense.
4.3 Component ID. When Your Component is listed on the RightScale Component Library, We will provide You a unique Component ID, which will be assigned to and may be used only by You and only in connection with that particular Component.
