Corona does not run in the background. i.e. When suspended it is fully suspended.  (This has nothing to do with free or not free.)

Hello, I am creating an app that visits a website and does a data scrapping and returns the version of a program, I want to create a function that twice a day at fixed times, the app accesses the website and check the version, if it is new, the app issues a local push notification, I think this would be a background service and somewhere I read that Corona does not support background functions, in my case can you do that with Corona free or not?
