I'm aware of the "remember" option of views, but it is stored in session data (not persistent if you logout) and I want to keep the selections saved forever (so the users only have to do the selections once when they sign up).

I've done quite a lot of research regarding different options that maybe could do the trick, but haven't found out yet a viable solution to it. The options I've researched are:

1) With the module "views saved searches" (works but for usability reasons is not an option in this case)

2) Coding a way to remember the exposed filters selected via cookies or database (I haven't found anything about this and I don't know how to code a solution myself).

3) Making the selection in a node or profile page (with CCK, Nodereference/Entity Reference or Relation fields) and applying the selection of each user to "personalize" their view accordingly (maybe following one of the two options briefly mentioned in point 3 of this answer: https://stackoverflow.com/a/1409382 or using advanced features of relationships and/or arguments)

Any help would be appreciated.

    You should make an answer for yourself, and then answer it so that others know you found an answer :) – Johnathan Elmore Dec 7 '12 at 17:52

Take a look at Views Global Filters module. That will solve your problem.

The project page reads

Use Views Global Filter on sites that feature multiple Views. You want the views to be driven by the same filter selection, for instance a country, a date range, a search term or even proximity to a post code.
