Hum, if it only applies to organizations, then it's fine.
What if someone stores an absurd amount of IP adress or phone numbers and shares it to an organization though? Would it be legal?
Probably not for the individual. The company would have to account for the large number of ip addresses without source though. They'd have to figure out who these ip addresses belong to and ask for consent before they can legally store them.
I say probably because I'm not 100% familiar with GDPR. Also, keep in mind that GDPR is a European directive, which means that its content is not literally represented in EU member states. EU member states are free to fill in the blanks when implementing the directive while still following the basic premise. In my country, the national law AVG is stricter than GDPR.
