Sometimes, I need to pass data in the URL. Is this considered bad practice?

Something like:
URL: https://mydomain.com/mailing?fc=123&uc=456&fname=TERESA&lname=LINDSEY

What are my options?

And what about creating a "blob" on characters and passing that in? It will be my PHP on the receiving end, so I could easily encode and decode this.

Thanks
