jquery to asp - submitting a form to store in database

I have a HTML form with 3 text fields (name,email,telephone). Using jquery, the form posts without refreshing the page or going to another page. However, the way it's set-up means that spaces are lost and funny characters like  ? = & " ' are breaking the data.

At the moment, the code is very stripped down for testing purposes. The ASP page that the form is sent to is literally just storing the form data as sessions so I can see what's being passed to it from my form submit page.

If I do an alert box after line 28, I see the funny characters and spaces are still there. Its after that they get lost.
LINE 28: var dataString = 'name='+ name + '&email=' + email + '&phone=' + phone;

A friend said I should look into javascript maps to fix the problem but frankly I have no idea what that is, I'm not a JS/jQuery/AJAX guy. I'm classic ASP and classic clueless!

Can somebody please update my code so whatever is submitted comes out exactly the same in the ASP page?

Thanks experts!
