What's the rule when putting a deck footing on a slope?

Well, there is a general rule and it's based on average soil conditions.
So if you have unstable soil on a slope all bets are off.
You will want to speak to an authority in your area.
Usually a Geo-technical engineer or someone with lots of experience in your local building department with building decks with know exactly what to do.

Seven Foot Rule
 
The Seven Foot Rule is a great rule of thumb to be safe. It's simple to remember and for most conditions quite conservative.

But don't push it. If you are on a mountainside with tons of rain in the winter months, do speak to someone who is professionally qualified.
Otherwise you are flirting with disaster.

As you see here any footings on a sloped grade like this should be quite safe as long as there widest point of the footing is no closer than seven feet from the slope if you project a horizontal line at from the point of the underside of the footing.
