So I terminated my gym membership about 2 months ago (notice period was 1 month, but I wanted to have it done at that point just to be sure). I handed in the paper personally, because I still worked out there. I made sure to get some sort of confirmation in order to prove afterwards that the termination was handed in. I handed it in to one of the employees, which signed that he had received it and then copied it (one copy for me, one copy for the gym/boss). In the termination I wrote, that the gym owner (who is obviously the contract holder) should send me another confirmation of receiving the termination and telling me the actual termination date of the contract.
Since then, I have not received any mail from the owner regarding this additional confirmation paper. I asked him about 1 week after turning in the termination if he got it, he said he got it. Another 2 weeks later I asked if he already sent the confirmation, he said he'll do it at the end of the month (for whatever reason). I wasn't really worried about that because we never had any disagreements or something. I just quit the membership because I'm moving soon. Today I asked again, and he said something along the lines "oh, you did not get it? I'll send you one the next day".
Since he already said he'd send the confirmation weeks ago, without him actually doing so, I don't really trust him this time either. So my question now is: Is the termination of the contract valid without me receiving (or him sending) the confirmation? Or in other words maybe: Is the signiture of the employee under the termination enough for me to be sure I don't have to pay the next membership period (which is 6 months, starting in march).
All this takes place in Germany, may be relevent to the case because of local laws and stuff I guess.
