Policies and legal issues
When students register at Imperial College they agree to abide by all of the College regulations. The Exam Offenses and Plagiarism regulations set by the University under the Registry Exam Office state:
"The College may submit your coursework to an external plagiarism detection service, and by registering with the College you are automatically giving your consent for any of your work to be submitted to such a service. Failure to observe these rules may result in an allegation of cheating. Cases of suspected plagiarism will be dealt with under the College's Plagiarism and Examination Offences Policy and may result in penalties being taken against any student found guilty of plagiarism."

(iii) there exists another situation where the transfer is permitted under applicable law (for example, where we have your explicit consent).
