    User Defined Info. throughout the site?

    Ok...I don't know if I can/should do this w/ JavaScript on the client or can/should this be done on the server - and if so what language would be best?

    Here's my goal:
    I am asking users 4 questions - depending on the one selected - that answer creates a profile and that profiles stays with them throughout the site.

    E.G.; if (women under 30) is selected this information will stay on the site throughout w/ content detailed for this group.

    What is the best method for this?

    Thanks....

    Thanks for the reply...
    If you could elaborate that would be great...
    Or point me towards some tutorials/resources..

    Plus, if there are other ideas, that would be great also..

    I guess...if anyone has a conceptual idea of how this should would be nice to know. Or if anyone has done this....
