Hi Alex, Thank you for your question. Contact details of the parties responsible for specific Internet number resources are essential for the smooth and uninterrupted operation of Internet and connectivity. One of the purposes of the RIPE Database is to facilitate communication between the people responsible for networks to address technical issues, allowing for quick coordination between operators that do not have a direct relationship. For more information on the purpose that justifies this type of processing of personal data in the RIPE Database and the responsibilities of the responsible parties, please refer to our second and third article on How We're Implementing the GDPR, available here: https://www.ripe.net/about-us/legal/corporate-governance/gdpr-and-the-ripe-ncc Kind regards, Maria Stafyla Legal Counsel RIPE NCC
