First Interaction Attribution Model - What time range does this cover?

I know that under the First Interaction model, Google attributes 100% of the conversion value to the channel that provided the First Interaction.

 

However, my question is, what range is this?

 

For example, in First Interaction Model Attribution:

Day 1 - User visits my website via AdWords

Day 15 - User visits my website via Direct and makes a purchase of £100

First Interaction would attribute 100% of the sale to AdWords.

 

However, what about this?

 

Day 1 - User visits my website via organic Google Search

Day 150 - User visits my website via AdWords, and makes a purchase of £100

I'm guessing Google will attribute 100% of the sale to AdWords, as the User's organic Google Search visit was 150 days ago, and thus too far back.


That's my question: What defines a "first interaction"?

Attribution modeling should only cover a 90 day window

Oh! I thought the 30/60/90 day window was how long they track a User's Actions, after the User has clicked on an Ad?
