The GPL is a distribution licence and not a usage licence. You do not have to agree to anything within the GPL to use GPL software. You have to follow the terms of the GPL if you wish to *distribute GPL software*.

You have to follow the terms of the GPL v3 if you wish to *convey GPL v3 software*.

"Convey" includes doing things like "give someone vouchers so they can obtain".
