prevent adwords displaying within private browsing sessions

I am noticing up to 50% of clicks lasting for under 3 seconds that appear to be coming from private browsing sessions.  Server logs normally show the search term that triggered the ad to display withing Google Search however over the past month I have noticed clicks that originate from Comcast IP address that do not show any search term entered into Google Search.  What could cause this problem and can I prevent my ads from displaying within private browsing sessions?

Search queries which trigger the ad, are NOT shown anymore in Analytics. Google removed them in SSL searches.
