How do I use query string variables to pass data from a database to an asp.net visual c# web site?

I have written the attached code to identify a users login details. I next want to pass in three query string parameters: Database details (from a connection string), a document number from the database (int) and a version number from the database (int), however I only want the information to be available to the user if they have sufficient permission, hence obtaining their login details.

using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Security.Principal;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using IManage;
public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page 
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //Pull back current users login details and show in a text box
        //TextBox1.Text = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name;
        //Pull back current users login details and show in a text box, but only in this particular section of code which is before the undo statement
        System.Security.Principal.WindowsImpersonationContext impersonationContext;
        impersonationContext = ((System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity)User.Identity).Impersonate();
        WindowsIdentity currIdentity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();
        string NtAccountName = currIdentity.Name;
        TextBox1.Text = NtAccountName;
