Session data is all stored on the server, so it requires a submit in
order for the server to actually get the data.

You could use Ajax to grab the form data and send it to the server if
you need though.

However, I'm not really sure what your question is. Are people visiting
your site, filling in a form, then pressing the back button to go
somewhere else? If so, maybe they intended to not submit the form.
