IP addresses (of the subscriber) are personal data.
Although it's taken a long time for this to be nailed into law (rather than

I'm surprised. IP addresses from ISP's are shared. They are rarely given to
end devices but rather routers that are also shared. How could they be
classed as identifiable? To whom under the law?
