access confluence without license

We are looking to create product help using confluence and want to create certain sections of help only for logged in users. I did some research and it seems that all logged in users consume a license in confluence. Is my understanding correct, or is there a way to give read-only access to logged in users without consuming a license?

You are correct in your assumption. The only workaround would be a generic log in shared by these users with very restricted rights. But not sure if that violates the license or not.

Even on the server/data center, you would consume a license. BUT you have the option of creating a gateway to even access the site, so could create user logins to access a "help center" which then allows them so see anon pages in Confluence.
