... They autorenewed the contract, even without my confirmation. Looks like it needs to be specified upon signing that you don't want to autorenew. (Being expat at not being able to read french, this is not easy to be aware of and English contracts are not available)...
Be advised - most contracts in Switzerland are written in German, French or Italian. If you can't read and understand it, don't sign without having someone who does know the language read it over. Auto-renewals are common with gym memberships, phone contracts, and the Swiss Pass (GA or half-tax card).

The fact a person is unable to read and comprehend the contract they sign is not an excuse to get out of paying. It's still a legally binding contract and fighting will only reduce your bank account further.
