Q1:
Does the few lines of java script pose security concern other than capturing potential customer's
personal data (this is Ok but not capturing more than that)

Q2:
Does the java script codes violate any OWASP Top 10 secure coding practices?

I don't see any issues with the script. All it does is create a random number which it inserts into the URL that is used in a dynamically created <iframe>. No other information appears to be passed in the src other than the hardcoded variables and the random number.
