You won't be able to save it to a file on the client machine unless you use ActveX, make a call to a server-side program, etc.

Can you save it as a cookie, or save it on a database?

I don't mind if it save on server or client

If you are saving the data on client side, you can use cookies (keep in mind that user can disable or clear cookies, that is something the control of the programmer).

To save the data on server side, simple post to a page on your server either using AJAX or conventional form submit and capture the HTTP request data using what ever server side script you use and save it. Actual steps of capturing and saving data on server side will depend on the scripting language you use.
