Have a button (or async request on a timer) POST the form in its current state to the server.
The server then commits the state to some form of storage.
When the user requests that page in the future, the server looks up the form in storage (if available) and serves a page with a partially filled out form.

Also the Browser typically is set to remember this kind of stuff. AutoFill it's called.

The server can onyl know who you are based on Session/Cookie/IP

 

typically Cookies though. Those are handled on the Server Side mostly, though some Javascript libraries let you store non-permanent cookies
