Ad clicks coming in from old campaigns

Hello.

 

I have recent click data coming through on analytics which is from paid search on campaigns renamed more than a month ago. How is this possible?

 

High bounce rate ad 'Vos cassettes audio en CD' is from campaign 'Video France' which has long been renamed.

Hello.

 

The Analytics cookie for a campaign lasts 6 months. So if someone clicked on one of your ads three months ago and today she returned as a direct visitor, Analytics regognizes her as belonging to the three months old campaign.
