I have a page on a website that links to various catalogs. If a person calls customer service I would like customer service to be able to direct them to this page (and the catalog pages) in a manner that is easy on both the customer service person and the end user.

However after a brief time, I do not want the customer to be able to come back to the page (or any of the other pages in the same directory, which are the catalog pages).

Any thoughts on how best to implement this?

Just a quick idea off the top of my head... How about a modified form of a URL shortening service.

You could enter the customer name into a database, and ask them to go to some address, ie:

Retrieve the record from the DB by customer name, and check if it was created less than say, 5 minutes ago. If all is OK then load the catalog page on the fly.
