Hi Sam,
Instead of appending the variables in the URL, better save them in a session and retrieve the same when you need them. Here your privacy is maintained while redirecting. You can also use removeAttribute() method to delete the unwanted attributes.
Regards,
Kiran.

if you use servlet then set this value in servletcontext and then retrive value whenever you want.
