What is a Freeride?

Freeride comes into play when a heartbeat fails. A heartbeat failure might be the result of a failed connection (e.g., no internet) or a actual license issue, such as an expiration. Regardless of the failure reason, the freeride period allows the user to keep using the software and until it is is finally locked. If a heartbeat succeeds during the freeride period, everything returns to its normal state.
