That's NOT true.

You failed to read the Terms and Conditions, where you
would have seen this:

    To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all
    or part of the work in a fashion requiring copyright

    To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it
    that, without permission, would make you directly or
    secondarily liable for infringement under applicable
    copyright law...

So the license says that if you want to do something that
copyright law would stop you from doing, the only way to
do that is to accept the license. If copyright law lets
you do something, then that action is not covered by the
defined terms "modify" and "propagate", and you don't need
the license to give you that permission anyway.
