This article reveals the problem of legal regulation of private personal information. The problem occurred in connection with development of new technologies that allow capturing the features of the subtle-matter shell being the human aura. The technology of gas discharge visualization (GDV), based on the Kirlian effect, makes it possible to observe the human aura, to register its stable and repeated properties on a special film, as well as to process such registered personal information by means of software programs, and to store it in the computer memory. Moreover, it is possible to identify the subject of such information according to the unique parameters of vital (mental) energy of the person - energy features of the aura of an individual that are captured in the picture, i.e. Kirlian photography. However, the Federal Law of 27 July 2006 No. 152-FZ «On Personal Data» solely regulates legal protection of information relating to physiological and biological features only of the physical body of an individual, while not regulating information in the form of GDV-images of his subtle-matter shells (bodies) captured with the help of modern equipment. For this reason, the author studies the patterns of the energy-informational structure of a human in order to find out, the information of which shells, constituting the aura, is captured by GDV. As a result of the conducted research, firstly, the author chose a septenary pattern of the energy-informational structure of a human, out of which the personal data only of physical, ethereal and astral bodies can be captured by the GDV method and be processed by special software. Secondly, the author prepared a legislative proposal to expand the list of categories of biometric personal data by adding a new type being the energy personal data.
