Well the biggest issue with clicking on links is the embedded javascript on the site, sometimes it will try and pull cached data from your browser such as passwords and usernames. You say you quickly went off it so you probably didnt give the website much of a chance to load. You did a scan as well so any tracking cookies should have been found. I would say your safe.
