Parsing data to a webpage

Last Modified: 2010-04-27
Hi all,

I use a email marketing program called getresponse.com
I have it so that when the user inputs their email address, first name and a ID number they submit it and sign up to my newsletter. Now I have it set so that the data appears in the URL at the top when it directs them to the next window after confirmation.

What I would like to know is if there is a way I can parse this information (correct term here?) so that when they are at the confirmation web page it will say "Dear XXXX(person's name)" instead of dear friend

Thanks in advance guys
