Multi-User WebDirect Design Issues

I have designed a WebDirect application hosted on a FM Server intended for Web use only.  The signup form uses global variables to collect information about the client then commits them to the database (including creating a user with password). 

 

My question is:  if many users try to sign up at the same time, will the input make a mess of the global variables that I am using on the registration layout?  I am concerned that two or more users will try to use the layout form at the same time (intentional) and that the data may overwrite another users data.  How does Filemaker handle this situation?  What is the 'correct' design for an application like this?
