How to pass char & - ampersand as parameter

Anoboyd know how to pass & as content of parameter in OXID?
For example:
param1=value1&param2=Bob & John Company&param3=value3

if i send it with:

it will write into db as a:
Bob & John Company

Is it correct way? Or is it any other tricky way?


Sorry folks.

When i get data with
‘getRequestParameter’ (not with escape)
it saved data in db with:
Bob & John Company
