Cookie Consent Manager for Public Utilities
Supply and transport companies such as the municipal utility have an important function in the municipal infrastructure: They ensure the basic supply of households and public life. The tasks are as diverse as the cities themselves: from electricity, water and heat to waste management and local public transport to the operation of swimming pools, road maintenance and fiber optic connections. With the variety and importance of tasks comes a large amount of data, users and responsibility. Professional and comprehensive data protection for public utilities is therefore essential. With Consentmanager you have the optimal cookie solution with guaranteed legal certainty.
