How to persist informations on MasterPage after page refresh

I'm starting to develop a project using ASP.NET.

Initially our application displays a login screen (Start.aspx) for user authentication.

After logging in, the user is directed to the default page of the application. This page (Default.aspx) is the daughter of a master page (Root.Master).

As our company is a service provider, we serve many customers then, after loading the Default.aspx page, our user must select which client he will perform his duties.

After the user selects his client, Default.aspx page sets the text property of some existing Labels in Root.master (such as login time, source IP, user id, customer id).

Everything is good so far. The problem occurs when our user presses the F5 key, or run a browser refresh. We lost the information that was displayed on Root.master.

How to persist this information after Refresh?
