This is a little over the top, it could easily be debated that an IP address isn't personal data under "Article 4, Point 1" since at least in the case of IPV4 address it will likely be shared by multiple people and the only way to "indirectly" identify the person paying for the IP is via the courts so I'd have said that was pretty secure by default. Plus, why would a regulator consider IP address as personal information? It just makes more work for them that doesn't benefit the "people" the law is designed to protect.
