I'm doing an online survey for my university, I'm storing part of the link as a session variable which is inserted in a myssql database.

In the database i've seen one answered survey where this variable has not been stored. As it is not even 1% of the dataset I do not really mind but I would like to suggest a reason for not storing this variable in my thesis. Does anyone know about security settings / browser types etc. that will not allow to pass session variables?

Thx!

Sessions relie on cookies being enabled in the users browser. This may be the issue.

I was in the assumption that session variables on the server were passed even with cookies disabled...but just tested it and I was wrong. Thx for the answer! ;)
