Of course Google, facebook, twitter etc could have just not got upto all the profiling and tracking, and then the little guys would not be suffering from a law designed to bring the big abusers to heel..
Not all of the abusers were US based either by any means, right up there amongst the worst of the trackers and profilers, Criteo, a French company willing to track anyone anywhere any time, and sell your private data to anyone any time anywhere.

Consumer Opt-Out from Sale of Personal Information: Under the CCPA, California consumers are afforded the right to “opt-out” of the “sale” (which is broadly defined) of their personal information. Covered Businesses must provide notice of this right to consumers (including by providing a clear and conspicuous hyperlink entitled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” on their websites) and must implement designated methods for consumers to opt-out (including a toll-free number and website address for opting-out). Covered Businesses must honor consumer opt-outs, and must wait 12 months before seeking re-authorization to sell their personal information.
Consumer Opt-In for the Sale of Personal Information of Minors: Under the CCPA, the personal information of minors under the age of 13 may only be sold if the consumer’s parent or guardian has affirmatively authorized (opted-in to) the sale. For minors aged 13-16, affirmative authorization is also required, but the consumer may provide the authorization.
Non-Discrimination for Exercise of Consumer Rights: Under the CCPA, Covered Businesses are prohibited from discriminating against consumers based on their having exercised rights (i.e., opting out of collection or monetization of data) pursuant to the CCPA. A Covered Business cannot refuse to sell goods or provide services, charge different prices for such goods or services, or provide lower quality goods and services because a consumer exercises his or her rights under the CCPA. However, this requirement does not prohibit a Covered Business from charging different prices or providing different quality goods or services if the difference is “reasonably related” to the value of the personal information at issue.
